Covered dental cleanings and exams will be different for each plan:
- The Renaissance Basic Plan includes 2 cleanings and 2 exams at no cost.
- The Essentials and Complete plans include 3 cleanings and 2 exams covered at no cost.
What else should I know?
You may see exams referred to as "Oral examinations." They are payable twice per benefit year when done in-network.
Cleanings, also know as "Prophylaxes", are payable three times in a given year and may include periodontal maintenance.
Note, deep cleanings are not considered preventative care and will be billed as a major service! If you receive an exam and a dentist determines that a deep cleaning is necessary, know that this will be treated differently than preventative care and will be subject to a coinsurance.
