Cigna Coverage Availability & Fees
Cigna offers several different PPO dental insurance plans, so you will need to check the details of your unique policy to find out how it may apply in any given situation. In the meantime, here is an overview of how some Cigna plans work:
- Preventive services: 100% covered. This typically includes cleanings, exams, and routine X-rays.
- Minor restorative care: Up to 80% covered. Usually, fillings and simple extractions fall into this category.
- Major services: Around 50% covered. Crowns, root canal therapy, and oral surgery (including many of the services offered at Northern Virginia Oral, Maxillofacial & Implant Surgery) are often included in this category.
Also, keep in mind that your plan likely has an annual maximum, which may be anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000. This is an annual limit on how much Cigna will pay for approved services. Because we are in-network with Cigna, we have a contract with them that controls prices. Therefore, you can get as much value as possible out of your annual maximum.
In some cases, we are even able to schedule major procedures between calendar years. This could allow you to utilize two annual maximums instead of just one.
