AWA Premier Dental is a fixed indemnity dental insurance plan that pays for services/procedures based on a Schedule of Covered Procedures. Members will know exactly what the plan will pay, procedure by procedure, before their appointment. Members are responsible for the remaining balance between the indemnity benefits paid and the in-network provider’s contracted fees, or the out-of-network provider’s normal fees. Access to a nationwide Dental PPO Network is included with the AWA Premier Dental plans. The coinsurance, deductible and maximum are the same, regardless of whether members visit an in-network dentist or an out-of-network dentist. But by utilizing an in-network provider, members will generally incur less out-of-pocket cost.
