Residents and their dependents are eligible to enroll in the Cigna Preferred Provider Organization (PPO). If you decide not to enroll, you must wait until the next open enrollment period to receive this benefit.
This is a traditional plan that provides reimbursement for dental services from a network of participating providers, or at a lower benefit, outside the network from any licensed dentist of your choice. You are required to pay the dentist for normal charges and then file a claim for reimbursement when an out of network provider is used.
