Cigna will now be the sole carrier for the State of Connecticut dental plans. This change goes into effect as of July 1, 2014. There will be three plans offered by Cigna: Basic, Enhanced PPO and DMHO.

Basic Plan -allows you to visit any dentist of specialist without a referral.

Enhanced Dental PPO- offers dental services both within and outside a defined network without a referral.

DHMO Plan- provides dental services only from a defined network. You must select a Primary Care Dentist (PCD) to coordinate all care and referrals are required for all specialist services.

The benefits currently offered under the Basic and Enhanced PPO will not change, however, there are updates and improvements to some benefits.

Improvements are as follows:

Basic Plan-Sealants will now be covered for children up to age 16

Enhanced Plan-Coverage will be provided for dental implants, up to $500 per year.

Updates to frequency limits under both Basic and Enhanced plans:

Crown Replacement-Frequency limit changed from once every 5 years to once every 7 years.

360 Degree Panoramic X-Ray-Frequency limit changed from once every 3 years to once every 5 years.

We believe if you wish to remain in the same plan (Basic, Enhanced, DMHO), you do not need to complete a change form. You will automatically default to the same plan as in Cigna.

We recommend the Basic Plan for all of our patients. We recommend not going to the DMHO because you would not be able to be seen here.

We will be happy to answer any of your questions, please call and speak with Pat at 860-646-2251.
