Dental Insurance

2020 Dental Plans. Coverage ends December 31, 2020.

Vanderbilt offers two dental plans:

  • Cigna Dental Care (DHMO)
  • BlueCross BlueShield Dental PPO

Cigna Dental Care (DHMO)

This option has no deductibles, waiting periods or dollar maximums. There is a co-pay (a set fee) for dental services. Some procedures have frequency limits, such as one cleaning per 6-month period. Cigna DHMO has a smaller network of dentists and does not provide out-of-network coverage. See the Cigna DHMO Patient Charge Schedule for details.
