Dental care is key to your overall health and dental coverage is something you want in your Medicare plan. That’s why UVM Health Advantage Medicare Advantage plans offer dental benefits to meet your needs.

Dental Benefit Highlights

All UVM Health Advantage Medicare Advantage plans cover two exams, two cleanings, and two sets of X-rays per calendar year.

All of our plans include coverage for preventive dental services. This includes up to two routine exams, cleanings, and sets of X-rays each year. All our plans also include an allowance for comprehensive dental services - with no deductible or cost sharing up to the allowance amount.

You will receive a separate dental ID card for your dental plan. Show this card when you receive dental services. You can choose to go to any dentist, but your costs generally will be lower if you go to a DenteMax Medicare dentist.

Sign into Gia® or create an account , and then select My Benefits, then Member Guide (.PDF) to find your Evidence of Coverage for more information about benefit coverage and charges.

DenteMax Network

Generally, your costs will be lower if a DenteMax Medicare dentist treats you. DenteMax Medicare dentists accept the maximum allowable benefit amount per service as payment in full. You will not be billed for additional costs for dental services covered by the plan.

If you choose to go to another dentist, you may pay more. Dentists outside of the DenteMax network can bill you for additional costs if what they charge is more than the maximum benefit amount for preventive services the plan covers.

Dental Benefit Details

The amount MVP pays a dentist for covered services is based on the maximum allowable benefit amount for each service. If your dentist charges more than the maximum allowable benefit for a service, you may be billed for the difference.

You are responsible for:

  • 100% of all charges that exceed the maximum allowable benefit amount
  • Any services provided after you meet your annual allowance
  • Any dental services this benefit doesn’t cover
  • Costs for services once you reach your plan’s annual benefit amount

You can’t carry over any unused part of your annual benefit amount to the next calendar year. Sign into Gia® or create an account to view your Evidence of Coverage for more details.
