Some of the advantages of a UnitedHealthcare dental plan are the broad range of options offered when it comes to coverage, options and costs; the focus on health and wellness; some of the country's largest national and regional networks; prompt and effective customer and administrative services; and effective outreach programs, according to UnitedHealthcare. Among the plans offered are value; select managed care; gateway PPO; PPO open access; and indemnity.
The plan's focus on health and wellness features an integrated approach to health care, letting members make educated choices about their well-being, says UnitedHealthcare. Members are provided with important information about dental health, including its relation to diabetes prevention and pregnancy health. Outreach groups feature more than 100 employees who are dedicated specifically to the needs of members with chronic conditions. Companies can also choose to pay none, some, or all of their employees' premiums.
The value dental plan is perfect for employers who want to provide their employees with a dental plan but face cost issues, claims UnitedHealthcare. The plan features 100 percent coverage on preventive and diagnostic services and discounts from 20 to 50 percent on all other services. At the other end of the scale, the indemnity plan offers employees no network restrictions and the greatest flexibility and coverage.
