UVa Dental Plan

The UVa Dental Plan offers two options: Basic Dental and Enhanced Dental. Both options are administered by United Concordia and provide a broad scope of dental services offered by a carefully selected network of dentists. When United Concordia participating dentists are used, participants receive the maximum benefits available. Members may be balance-billed and incur more expenses if non-participating dentists are used. A current listing of network dental providers can be found at the United Concordia website.

Basic Dental

The Basic Dental option provides $1,000 per person each calendar year for dental benefits. In-network coverage is 100% of the allowable charge for diagnostic and preventive services including two cleanings annually. After a $50 deductible is satisfied annually, in-network coverage for primary and periodontal services is 80% of the allowable charge and 50% for complex restorative services.

Enhanced Dental

The Enhanced Dental option provides $2,000 per person each calendar year for dental benefits. In-network coverage is 100% of the allowable charge for diagnostic and preventive services including two cleanings annually. After a $50 deductible is satisfied annually, in-network coverage for primary and periodontal services is 80% of the allowable charge and 60% for complex restorative services. Coverage for orthodontia services is 50% of the allowable charge. The lifetime orthodontia maximum is $1,000 per person. The orthodontia benefit is separate from the annual maximum dental benefit.
