Dental

You may choose between the following two plan types:

Dental Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) 

The State of Arizona offers a dental PPO through Delta Dental Premier.  In a dental PPO, you receive the highest benefit when you use providers included in the Plan's 'Preferred' network. You may use providers not in the Plan's 'Preferred' network, but your out of pocket expenses will be greater. 

 Pre-paid Dental Plan\Dental Health Maintenance Organization (DHMO)

The State of Arizona offers a pre-paid dental plan or  DHMO through Total Dental.  To receive any benefit under a dental DHMO, you need to use providers included in the Plan's 'Exclusive’ network of providers. Non-emergency services received from providers not the Plan's 'Exclusive' network are not covered.  

Review the dental provider networks

An important step in choosing a dental plan is to review the in-network providers to make sure that they meet your needs. Visit the plan websites listed below to review the providers in each network.

Effective January 1, 2018 CIGNA Dental will be the provider for pre-paid dental plan or  DHMO.
