Comprehensive Dental Care: NYPD PBA Dentist & Cigna PPO

Posted on December 20, 2023

Your Smile, Our Priority

At 209 NYC Dental, we understand the importance of a healthy and radiant smile. That’s why we are thrilled to be partners with Cigna Dental PPO so we could offer comprehensive oral care to our PBA police force. As a multi-specialty dental office that proudly accepts Cigna PPO, we are dedicated to providing top-notch dental care to our community, and we are proud to welcome our Police Benevolent Association to join our dental practice.

Cigna Dental Plan Access for New York City Police Benevolent Association

We recognize the significance of a comprehensive dental plan in ensuring your dental well-being. Our dental office is pleased to be in the Cigna network. This means that you can enjoy the benefits of our services while minimizing your out-of-pocket costs. We accept reduced rates offered through Cigna PBA insurance, making many services covered at 100%. This way, you can concentrate on your responsibilities with confidence, knowing your oral health is covered through Cigna PPO and your co-pay for services is reduced.

NYPD PBA And Cigna Advantage

Choosing a Cigna dentist can offer several benefits to PBA members, primarily related to cost savings, convenience, and potentially improved coordination of care. Here are some advantages of seeing an participating dentist or dental specialist:

1. Cost Savings:

Discounted Rates: Contracted dentists have pre-negotiated fees with insurance companies. This means that the cost of dental services is often lower when you see a participating Cigna dentist compared to an out-of-network one.

Lower Out-of-Pocket Costs: Your insurance plan may cover a higher percentage of the costs when you visit a Cigna dentist, resulting in lower out-of-pocket expenses for you. In addition, many services are covered at 100%.

2. Predictable co-pay:

Transparent Fees: Being contracted with Cigna means that a dentist must typically adhere to a fee schedule that is predetermined by the insurance company. This transparency helps patients understand and plan for dental expenses more easily.

3. Insurance Coverage & Benefits Utilization:

Maximizing Benefits: Insurance plans often cover a higher percentage of costs for in-network dentists. By choosing an in-network Cigna dentist, patients can maximize insurance benefits and get the most value out of the dental coverage.

4. Simplified Billing Process:

Direct Billing: In-network dentists often have direct billing arrangements with insurance companies. This means that our office will submit your claims directly to Cigna, reducing the administrative burden on you.

5. Cigna Network Directory:

Ease of Finding Providers: By logging into MyCigna account you can find provider directory of in-network dentists.

6. Provider Credentialing:

Provider Credentialing: Insurance companies regularly credential their in-network providers to maintain an up to date file for each contracted dentist. This ensures that participating dentists meet standards of education, like having a valid license to practice in NY state, DEA certificate to legally prescribe medication, stay current with their continuing education. This can provide a level of assurance regarding the knowledge and experience patients should receive by visiting a Cigna Dentist.

7. Coordination of Care:

Enhanced Communication: In-network providers may have better communication and coordination with insurance companies, facilitating smoother claims processing and approval for necessary treatments.

It’s important to note that while seeing an in-network provider can offer financial advantages, it’s also essential to consider factors such as the dentist’s qualifications, reputation, and the services they offer. In some cases, individuals may choose to see an out-of-network provider if they have a specific preference or need for a particular type of treatment. Always check with your insurance company and provider to confirm network status and coverage details before scheduling an appointment.
