Dental

Payment of dental benefits is based on the General Practitioners Dental Association suggested fee guide or the Insurance Reimbursement Rate set by the Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association Inc. (CLHIA) when a fee guide is not available. For services provided by a dental specialist, payment is based upon the General Practitioners Dental Association suggested fee guide.

Services are covered at rates outlined in the 1997 Alberta Dental Association Fee Guide for General Practitioners, plus inflationary adjustments as determined by the insurance carrier. Should your dentist charge fees in excess of the fee guide, the additional costs are not covered.

Alternate Benefit - When there are two or more courses of treatment available to adequately correct a dental condition, reimbursement may be based on the cost of the least expensive treatment, which provides adequate care to the Insured.

IMPORTANT! Please submit a pre-determination/pre-authorization to the insurance carrier prior to treatment of specialist services and any treatment plan exceeding $500.

Your plan covers up to a maximum of $1000 per benefit year.
