How Does It Work?
What is covered?
The Dentistry benefit is all about getting you access to a private network dentist for regular checkups and maintenance on your teeth. It covers:
- 2 consultations per member per year at a network dentist
- Various procedures like extractions, fillings, cleaning & pain control
- Crowns and root canal treatments according to the selected benefit level
- Dentures up to R2,000 per policy per year on benefit level 3
Protocols and formularies do apply to the procedures. The full list of protocols is not published by the product administrator because it is extensive and is constantly updated as medical procedures change. Your network dentist can advise you though.
What is the waiting period?
There is a 6 month waiting period before any new member on a policy can claim under this benefit.
Is medication covered?
Medication prescribed by a network dentist may be covered under the Acute Medication benefit of your Day-to-Day Plan.
Will there be co-payments?
The benefit is not uncapped. The limits are stated and the various protocols will apply. Most of the basic procedures listed are fully covered but if the dentist needs to perform a procedure that is not fully covered then you may have to pay in.
For example: amalgam fillings are covered under Level 1 but some dentists only do resin fillings, so there might be a shortfall that the benefit does not cover.
If you are unsure about what is covered then it is best to consult your network dentist about it or speak to us and we can assist.
