Graduate Appointees/Appointed PostDoc Fellows
The dental plan is available to all eligible Appointees, regardless of area of residence. Cigna Dental Health, Inc., is the plan administrator.
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.
