Ameritas Insurance Company Plans
Ameritas BrightOne plans offer comprehensive coverage that is designed to fit your budget.
This comprehensive coverage gives you the freedom to use any dentist you wish, and pays 100% of the amount allowed for Preventive care after a short elimination period. The plan features high coinsurance levels, low deductibles and a choice of calendar year maximums.
Visiting a dentist and having a covered procedure completed each year qualifies the insured to increase their coinsurance level the next year. You may use the dentist of your choice and select your calendar year maximum. Orthodontia benefits for adults and children are included after a 12-month elimination period.
This plan features no elimination period for Preventive care. Plus, the plan has the shortest elimination periods for Basic and Major care compared to our other plans. Insureds qualify to increase their coinsurance level annually simply by visiting the dentist of their choice each year and undergoing a covered procedure. This plan also includes Dental Rewards, which rewards qualifying insured’s who care for their teeth by rolling over a portion of their unused annual maximum.
