Get the most value from your plan

With your Cigna DHMO plan, some preventive services are covered at no extra cost to you. (See below.) Your plan also covers many other dental services that can help your mouth stay healthy.

Your Cigna DHMO plan is a copayment plan. Here's how it works. When you get a dental service, Cigna allows your network dentist to charge a certain amount. Then you pay a fixed portion of that cost. And your plan pays the rest. There are no annual maximums and no deductibles!

Review your plan materials for more information about how your plan works. If you have questions before enrollment, call 800.Cigna24 (800.244.6224) and select the "Enrollment Information" prompt.
