Dental Benefits with Elderplan

It is essential to maintain oral hygiene for good overall health! Regularly checking your teeth and gums is necessary as it can help prevent many common medical conditions. Our plans are designed to provide you with the dental care you need.

Find a dentist in our network

The key to good dental hygiene is to ensure you visit the dentist regularly. To ensure easy access to dental care, Elderplan has a contract with Healthplex, one of the largest dental care providers in New York.

Remember that your oral health is important to us, and we are here to support you every step of the way.

See Any Dentist You Want

Most of our plans allow you to consult with the dentist of your choice, whether in or out of the network. While we are proud to offer out-of-network dental services, it’s important that you understand your potential financial responsibility, especially for comprehensive services like crowns and fillings. We ask you to request your dentist to obtain a cost estimate from Healthplex before starting your treatment.

Always remember to carry your Flexible Spending Card to cover any out-of-pocket expenses you may incur when visiting your dentist.
