Many Cigna Advantage plans provide preventive dental care, including routine checkups, cleanings, and X-rays, with no copays or deductibles.

Restorative dental care coverage is included in most plans, as well, but you’ll have a copay. Cigna has a national network of over 90,000 dentists who provide dental care for their Medicare members.

How Cigna dental coverage works

Cigna Medicare dental coverage varies between plans, but most Advantage policies offer preventive dental coverage. When you visit an in-network dentist, they will automatically submit your insurance claim, and you won’t have to worry about the paperwork.

Before selecting a policy, check the deductibles and copays, and find out if you need to choose a primary dentist or see in-network dentists. For most plans, you’ll receive better benefits by visiting in-network dentists.
