Dental Plan Changes for Fillings Effective 7/1/17

Dental Plan Changes for Fillings Effective 7/1/17

In the past, Basic Restorative Coverage included Amalgam (silver) fillings and Composite (white) fillings on anterior teeth only; coverage for posterior teeth was limited to Amalgam (silver) fillings. Effective July 1, 2017, VEHI is adding coverage for Composite (white) fillings as an option for posterior teeth as well

Just a reminder – all members are eligible for assessment in the Health through Oral Wellness (HOW) program. A healthy mouth is part of a healthy life, and Northeast Delta Dental’s innovative Health through Oral Wellness program [HOW] works with your dental benefits to help you achieve and maintain better oral wellness. HOW is all about YOU because it’s based on your specific oral health risk and needs. Best of all, it’s secure and confidential. For more information on the program, click here.
