Worth Smiling About

Dental Coverage

Dental benefits are provided by Cigna to all members covered by Harris County’s medical plan.
  • You can choose to use any licensed dentist, though you’ll get the biggest savings if you use a dentist in the Cigna dental network. You can also see a specialist without a referral.

The amount your plan pays depends on:

  • The coinsurance level for the service you received
  • Which dentist you visit — in-network or out-of-network
  • If you’ve paid your deductible and/or reached your maximum benefit
  • Once you reach the plan’s maximum annual benefit, your plan will no longer pay a portion of your costs during that calendar year.
