Overview and Eligibility
The Company offers dental coverage through Aetna designed to help you and your covered family members maintain a healthy smile through regular preventive care and to fix any problems when they occur. This coverage is in effect from August 1, 2018 through July 31, 2019.
Aetna Dental Maintenance Organization Plan (DMO) is an HMO for teeth providing only in-network coverage that is coordinated by your primary care dentist (PCD). There is no deductible to meet and you pay a flat copay for services that are not fully covered by the plan, such as restorative services and orthodontics.
Aetna Dental Preferred Provider Organization Plan (PPO) offers cost sharing that kicks in after you meet the annual deductible (the deductible doesn't apply for in-network preventive and diagnostic care). Orthodontia is not covered under this plan. You can see any provider you wish, but you will pay less when you use an Aetna network dentist. Click here to learn more.

How the DMO plan works
You receive in-network preventive and diagnostic care at no cost, including routine exams, cleanings, fluoride treatments, and diagnostic X-rays.
For restorative services and orthodontics, the plan offers 100% coverage after you pay a flat copay.
There is no calendar year maximum so there is no limit to the amount of benefits the plan will pay in a year for certain eligible expenses.

How the PPO plan works
• You receive in-network preventive and diagnostic care at no cost, including routine exams, cleanings, fluoride treatments, and diagnostic X-rays.
• For restorative services, you must first meet a deductible. Once the deductible is met, you’ll pay a percentage of your expenses with the plan paying the remainder; this amount is called your coinsurance.
• If you meet the calendar year maximum, you’ll be responsible for 100% of the cost for the remainder of the calendar year.
