How are dental expenses covered?

Once you purchase a dental insurance plan and start paying your premiums, most preventive care like cleanings and check-ups are covered immediately. For more serious procedures, after you meet your deductible, you’ll only be responsible to pay your percentage of the cost. And we’ll pay the rest. Also, some dental plans have an out-of-pocket maximum to protect you from high costs throughout the year. On some plans, if you reach this maximum, we’ll pay the full cost of any additional care until your annual maximum benefit is met. 

Dental costs over a year

Deductible

An amount of money you’ll have to spend before coverage kicks in.

Copays & Coinsurance

The (usually small) part you pay for visits and treatments. We pay the rest.

Out-of-pocket maximum

If you reach your out-of-pocket maximum, we cover 100% of your expenses.

In Network vs. Out of Network

When you pick an Anthem dental insurance plan in Missouri, you’ll have access to leading dental health professionals near you. You’ll get the most savings if you get your care from one of the dentists in your plan.

Most dental plans cover cleanings and check-ups at 100% when you go to a dentist in your plan.

Dental procedures, cleanings, and preventive care all cost more when you see a dentist outside your plan.
