Dental Coverage

Both PPO and DMO options are available. Make sure you understand the differences so that you can choose the type that’s best for you and your family.

Cigna Dental PPO Options

Cigna will be the dental plan administrator for the dental PPO options. You’ll pay the cost of dental coverage with before-tax dollars. In an effort to provide employees with both choice and flexibility, Ricoh will offer two dental PPO options—the Dental PPO Plus and the Dental PPO preventive option—both of which are administered by Cigna. By taking advantage of discounted rates through Cigna network dentists, the dental PPO allows Ricoh and employees to more effectively manage dental costs. Under these “active” PPO dental options, receiving care from a Cigna dentist results in lower out-of-pocket costs for you due to higher coinsurance percentages paid by the insurance carrier and in-network discounted rates. Although you may still choose to receive dental care from any dentist, if you receive care from an out-of-network dentist, you will pay higher out-of-pocket costs. Like your medical coverage, choosing dental coverage is a personal decision. As you make this decision, take a look at the highlights and the different deductibles and coinsurance amounts of the dental PPO options.

Both dental PPO options allow you to take advantage of network discounts and get more benefit for theannual maximum by using a Cigna network dentist. You are not required to use a Cigna network dentist; however, if you do not, you will pay more in out-of-pocket expenses under either of the dental PPO options.

The Cigna network of dentists is extensive and includes over 72,000 dentists across the country. Detailed access studies indicate that over 90% of Ricoh’s employees live within 10 miles of at least two dentists in the Cigna network. To locate a Cigna dentist in your area, you can access the Cigna website at www.cigna.com. Click on “Find a Doctor” and be sure to search under "Dental: Total Cigna DPPO Network”. You can also find providers using Provider Direct on the Your Benefits Resources website.

ID Cards will not be provided to members of the Cigna dental plans. When visiting your dentist, provide them with a Cigna dental claim form, which includes Ricoh’s Cigna plan number. This Cigna claim form is available on RWorld and on http://mycigna.com.


Aetna Dental DMO Option

Aetna will be the carrier for the Dental DMO option. The Aetna Dental DMO option provides benefits for the same services that are covered under the Dental PPO options, but at a significantly lower out-of-pocket cost as long as you use a dentist that participates in the Aetna Dental DMO network.

The Aetna Dental DMO may be available to you depending on where you live. When you log in to Your Benefits Resources (YBR), you will see if the Aetna Dental DMO is available to you in your area. To locate an Aetna dentist in your area, you can access the Aetna website at https://www.aetna.com/ or call them at 1.855.496.6289.

Like a medical HMO option, if you elect coverage under the Aetna Dental DMO option you must seek dental care only from a dentist that participates in the Aetna Dental DMO network. In addition, you must elect a Primary Care Dentist (PCD) for each covered member of your family in order to access dental care. Failure to elect a PCD may result in claims being denied. Before you choose the Aetna Dental DMO option, you should check Aetna’s online dental provider directory for a list of local participating dentists.

When you enroll in the Aetna Dental DMO, you must select a primary dentist. If you do not, you will not receive an ID card and claims may be denied.

If you select a dentist when you enroll, you will receive an ID card in the mail within the first few weeks of January.

No out-of-network benefits are paid through the Aetna Dental DMO.

The summary above describes only the Aetna Dental DMO option. A few other non-Aetna dental DMOs with slightly different plan designs are available in different locations across the U.S. For information on these other DMO options, please refer to the specific information listed on the Your Benefits Resources website.
