Please view the MetLife VADIP Plan Summary to view the covered services, exclusions and limitations.

In-Network

What will your dentist charge you? The negotiated fee2 with participating dentists, which are typically 30% to 45% less than average dental charges in the same community. Negotiated fees2 apply to services covered by the plan, as well as those your dental plan does not cover or those received after you've reached your annual plan maximum as permitted by State law.

Out-of-Network

What will your dentist charge you? A fee set by each individual dentist, which is typically higher than the negotiated fee. You will be responsible for the difference between your dentist's charge and Maximum Allowed Charge.3

Like most group accident and health insurance plans, the MetLife VADIP Dental plan contains certain exclusions and limitations. Please download the plan summary to access these and other coverage details.

1 The Annual Maximum will increase by $200 in the Standard Option, and by $500 in the High option on January 1st following completion of 12 months of enrollment in the selected option.

2 Negotiated fees refer to the fees that participating dentists have agreed to accept as payment in full, for services rendered by them. Negotiated fees are subject to change.

Maximum Allowable Charge (MAC):  Reimbursement for out-of-network services is based on the lesser of the dentist’s actual fee or the Maximum Allowable Charge (MAC).  The out-of-network Maximum Allowable Charge is a scheduled amount determined by MetLife.
