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 DHMO through CIGNA 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.  

There are a limited number of dentists in the CIGNA network that are located in Northern Arizona. In additionCIGNA Dental is not offered in the following states: Alaska, Hawaii, Maine, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming.  You should not elect CIGNA Dental unless you are willing to use one of the network dentists.

You can find out which dentists are in the network by calling CIGNA customer service at 800.968.7366 or you can go to https://www.cigna.com/.
