UnitedHealthOne Golden Rule – Dental Plans
With dental insurance plans for you and your family, we can help make it easier to keep your smile healthy. From dental cleanings to root canals, it can be difficult to predict how much money you’re going to spend for your dental care. United HealthOne individual dental insurance plans can provide you with the coverage you need to help promote good dental health.
With either of the dental plans, you can take advantage of:
- Preventive care is covered at 100% with NO deductible or waiting period.
- Access to an extensive dental network that today has over 152,700 dentists.1
- Basic and Major Services have only a $50 calendar-year deductible per covered person, plus it is capped at 3 individuals per family – so if you have a family of 4, 5, 6 or even more, you’re only responsible for paying $150 in deductibles for the whole family!
- We pay 80% for Basic Services like cavity fillings and tooth extractions after the initial six-month waiting period is exhausted and the deductible is met.

A regular teeth cleaning at any age is considered preventive care and is covered 100% by a dental plan without a deductible.

What are the differences between dental insurance plans vs. dental discount plans?
Dental discount plans are like using a coupon. It only gives you a certain amount off of certain treatments, and you are limited to the places you can use those dental discount plans. Our dental insurance plans will cover cleanings and any preventive care at 100% without a deductible. Our dental insurance covers 50%-80% of other services such as cavity fillings, root canals, or dentures after a deductible and waiting period is met.
What are the waiting periods and why are there waiting periods on dental insurance plans?
There is a six-month waiting period for basic services and a 12-month waiting period for major services. If you were to have a crown, for example, you would have a 12-month waiting period, whereas a simple filling would only have a six-month waiting period. Waiting periods are lengths of time for your policy to be in force before your benefits begin. Many insurance plans enforce some waiting periods, even dental insurance plans. Our plans have no waiting periods on preventive services such as cleanings and sealants.
What services are covered under my dental plan?
Preventive services have no waiting period and include routine dental exams, routine X-rays, cleaning, fluoride treatment for children, sealants, and space maintainers.
Basic services have a six-month waiting period and include dental exams, X-rays, routine extractions, treatment for children to ease dental pain, and simple fillings.
Major services have a 12-month waiting period and include treatment for diseases of the pulp (including root canals), bone and other tissues supporting the teeth, crowns, inlays, onlays, veneers, bridges, dentures (payable once every 5 years), and oral surgery for impactions.
What is the annual maximum on my dental insurance plan?
There is a calendar-year maximum benefit of $1,000 per covered person. This mean your dental insurance plan would pay up to $1,000 of covered expenses.
Who gets reimbursed when I start using my dental plan?
Most traditional health insurance and dental insurance plans reimburse or pay a percentage of your actual expenses. Payment will be made to your dentist for covered services under your dental coverage.
