Dental benefits can help pay for you and your dependents dental expenses. The Humana Dental DHMO, administered by HumanaDental, focuses on maintaining oral health, prevention and cost containment.
- You must use network providers and choose a primary care dentist (PCD). Before you enroll, make sure there is a DHMO network dentist in your area. You and your covered dependents are not required to select the same PCD.
- You can see a PCD as often as necessary.
- Allows for two routine exams and cleanings per calendar year.
- There are no yearly maximums or deductibles.
- Copays do not apply to services received from participating specialty dentists. Instead, you receive up to 25% off the full cost for those services.
- Orthodontic coverage is available to adults and children.
