“I usually dread the dentist, but this time I walked away happy. I used my dental discount and saved $44 on my cleaning, $27 off fluoride, and $30 off my oral evaluation. That’s a total of $101 savings, or 51%! I’m so impressed with this savings and will continue to use my dental discount every time I visit the dentist.”
Kendall M., TX
“I went to a dentist in the dental network and asked what needed to be done. I have some very large, old fillings. My previous dentist told me I would need to have the teeth crowned. The network dentist, knowing I did not have insurance but did have the discount dental plan, said the crowns were one option and replacing the fillings was another. Had I chosen the crowns, my cost without insurance or the card would have been $750 per crown. With the dental plan, the same crowns would have been $496, a savings of over $250 on each crown. As it was, I wound up paying $142 for two fillings instead of $180, for a savings of $38. I was very pleased.”
Greg J., CA
”I recently added the discount card as an employee benefit for my staff. I had immediate positive feedback and used my own card with great results. My receptionist saved $780 when she found her orthodontist was in network and I personally saved $104 when I bought two pairs of Serengeti sunglasses for my Caribbean honeymoon!”
John M., TX
“Two weeks after receiving my discount card I had a dental emergency. With the discount card, I was able to locate a dental provider very near to my office. The emergency I experienced required I have one tooth capped and another one filled. The discount card saved me $200.”
Wood S., CA
“In June, my wife went to the dentist and needed to have work done on her teeth-- the total cost would be somewhere in the neighborhood of $8,000. I then went back to the billing office and showed them my card and the bill was reduced to about $1,600. I do not view it as being better than insurance, but I do think it is a tremendous help when insurance is not able to help.”
Daniel G., TX
“We saved $1,042, which is 25% off, on the cost of our daughter’s braces at a major chain. WOW!”
Carolyn H., TX
“I called my son's Orthodontist after verifying he was a participant and saved an additional $700 on his braces”
Karen C., CT
“I just went for my 6 month check-up at the dentist. On the way over, I remembered my discount card and wondered if it would save me any money on my cleaning and X-rays. When I got there, I gave the receptionist my card and told them I knew it wasn’t insurance but didn’t know if it was of any benefit. She said it couldn’t hurt to check. My X-rays and check-up cost me approximately $85 less by using the card. I was so happy to learn that! THANK YOU SO MUCH.”
John W., TX
“My husband went to the dentist today to have a root canal done. It would have been $575, but with his discount we paid $400… that’s a good deal! Thanks!”
“I was pleasantly surprised when the wife used the discount card. She saved almost $500 on a couple of dental procedures which included two crowns and X-rays. We saved more than 25%!”
Q. How does the dental plan work?
A. Participating dental providers are listed in the membership fulfillment kit; members may also call the toll-free number located on the back of the membership card Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central Time. When calling to schedule an appointment the member should identify him/herself as a member of the Aetna Dental Access® program. To receive the discount the member must present the membership card and pay the total discounted bill at the time of service.
Q. Is there a limit to the number of times the card can be used?
A. No. Members and their families may take advantage of the savings any time throughout the year. Members may also change dentists within the network whenever they choose.
Q. May this discount be combined with dental insurance?
A. In some cases, members may use both. If your insurance company allows you to submit claims after service, simply visit a participating dental provider, pay the discounted bill and submit the bill and claim to the insurance company. The net out-of-pocket cost will be lower because the insurance company would reimburse the member the percentage of the reduced bill as defined in their insured plan. If your insurance company does not allow the policyholder to submit claims, the discount dental can only be used for services not paid for by the insurance such as cosmetic dentistry or services after your annual maximum has been met.
Q. Is there someone that can answer questions about the card and services offered?
A. Yes. Simply call the toll-free number located on the back of the membership card Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Central and Saturday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Central. A member services representative is standing by to answer any questions.
