Not everyone who has Aetna insurance enjoys the same benefits. Your specific coverage can depend on your policy, which is why we encourage you to become familiar with what is and is not included in your benefits. We know that insurance language can be confusing, so we can help clarify any details that don’t make sense to you. Before you begin any treatment, we can confirm your benefits with Aetna so we only charge you what insurance doesn’t cover.
Although benefits and fees vary from patient to patient, generally plans include coverage predominantly for preventive care. In fact, some policies may cover 100 percent of the cost of checkups and cleanings! Minor repairs requiring tooth-colored fillings receive partial coverage between 70 and 80 percent, and Aetna usually pays for about half of major restorative work. This type of setup means that you could save more by avoiding problems in the first place and taking care of them as soon as possible.
If you have Aetna benefits through your employer, you can also turn to your HR department for clarification on your coverage. Even if they cannot answer your questions, they should have the contact information of someone you can work directly with to address your concerns. That contact could be a great resource for learning about the details of your plan and knowing what coverage to expect for certain treatments.
