Aetna Coverage Availability & Fees
Aetna offers both group and individual plans. Whether you have a policy through your employer or one that you bought on your own, it has its own unique set of details and stipulations that you should pay attention to.
Of course, many Aetna plans have some aspects in common. Here is an overview of the benefits you might enjoy:
- Preventive care: 100% covered. The deductible is waived for services like cleanings, exams, and routine X-rays.
- Basic procedures: 50 – 80% covered. This category includes fillings, simple extractions, and emergency pain relief.
- Major procedures: 50% covered. Root canal therapy, crowns, and dentures are all classified as major procedures.
It is important to keep in mind that your policy is also likely to have an annual maximum, which represents the greatest dollar amount that Aetna is willing to pay for approved services within a calendar year. Depending on your plan, the maximum may be around $1,000.
Because we have a contract with Aetna that controls prices, you can get more out of your annual maximum in our practice than you would at out-of-network providers. We will also give you guidance on how to schedule your care in a way that minimizes costs. For example, we can sometimes schedule major services across multiple appointments between calendar years, so you can use two annual maximums rather than one.
