Avesis offers four dental programs, including the Essential Pediatric plan and the Medicaid dental plan. Customers may also be eligible for the Medicare Advantage program or the MMP dental plan.
The Essential Pediatric dental plan from Avesis covers dental procedures for minor patients. The program meets all minimum benefit requirements under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, according to the company website.
As of 2015, Avesis services more than a million customers through its Medicaid plan, which provides dental benefits to individuals with low incomes. The Medicare dental plan goes a step further by incorporating research about the effects of poor oral health on conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. Customers with dual eligibility for Medicaid and Medicare can choose the MMP program for the coordination of care among both payment options.
