Your Caltech Dental HMO benefit plan provides you with access to essential dental care while helping to protect you against the rising costs of dental services. The copayments may be considerably lower than your cost would be without this dental plan1. For a full listing of all covered services and copayments, please refer to the Schedule of Benefits below.
Participating general dentists and specialists must meet well-established credentialing standards. Each dentist and specialist is pre-screened and subject to regular audits, including onsite visits to the dental offices. Remember that each enrolled family member may select a different participating general dentist.
Because dental care can be an important part of good overall health, we provide you access to valuable tools that can help you and your dentist make informed decisions about your dental benefits and oral health.
With this benefit plan, you don’t have to worry about deductibles, yearly maximums or filling out paperwork for claims. All you have to do is select a participating dentist at enrollment. Then just call to schedule your appointment after your plan’s effective date. When you receive dental services from your selected dentist, you are only responsible for the copayment for any covered services received.
Plus, if you need speciality care, no problem. Your selected participating dentist will provide you with the name of a participating specialist2. Just call that specialist to schedule your appointment. Any copayment amount for services is listed on your Schedule of Benefits. This copayment applies whether the services are provided by your selected participating general dentist or by a participating specialist.
