Dental Network Plan Options
PrimeStar℠ Advantage plans bring you the Ameritas network with features like:
- Discounted fees, typically 30% below average charges in your community
- Immediate network discounts
- One of the largest nationwide networks with over 428,000 access points and 111,500 unique providers
You have the option of a Network (MAC) or U&C PPO dental plan. If you visit an Ameritas network provider, the plan-paid benefits are based on a negotiated fee schedule.
Network (MAC) plans are designed for those who will visit an Ameritas dental network provider. If you visit a network dentist, your out-of-pocket costs will almost always be less because of the negotiated fees. If you visit an out-of-network dentist, you pay the difference between what the plan pays and the dentist;s actual charge, which may result in higher out-of-pocket costs.
U&C PPO plans are designed for those who value the freedom to visit any dentist, but will enjoy additional savings with an Ameritas network provider. While all of our PrimeStar℠ plans allow you to choose any dentist, U&C plans offer you richer benefits out-of-network than MAC plans. If you use a non-network provider, covered benefits are paid at the 80th percentile of usual and customary charges. You pay the difference between what the plan pays and the dentist’s actual charge, which may result in higher out-of-pocket costs compared to the Ameritas dental network negotiated fee schedule.
