Bright Plus

Good health starts with a healthy mouth. Regular dental exams and cleanings can lower the risk of gum disease, which is linked to heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and other serious conditions.

The Humana Bright Plus dental plan is designed for people who are looking to maintain their oral health through regular dental exams and cleanings. The plan offers affordable coverage for preventive and basic services like routine cleanings and exams, fillings, extractions, and $100 teeth whitening allowance. You can lower your cost by choosing one of the more than 270,000 dentist locations in the Humana Dental PPO network. You can visit Humana.com to find a participating specialist.

Additional Network Information:

Under our Bright Plus dental plan, you can choose to visit any dentist from the Humana network, no primary care dentist required. There are more than 270,000 dentist locations on the Humana Dental PPO network. Simply present your Humana Dental identification (ID) card when you see your dentist. It contains all the information your dentist needs to submit your claims.

Out-of-network dentists can bill you for charges above the amount covered by your Humana Dental plan. To ensure you do not receive additional charges, visit a dentist in the HumanaDental PPO network.

In Texas, the plans provide benefits for contracted and non-contracted dentists. Non-contracted dentists have not agreed to provide services at contracted fees. If a member sees a non-contracted dentist their out of pocket costs may be higher than that charged by contracted dentists. You may sometime see this referenced with the terms of in and out of network.

FAQ:

Can I change my dentist once I am in the plan?

Yes. You can change dentist or dental office at any time. Please contact Member Services for help locating participating provider in your area.

What is a pre-existing condition versus work-in-progress? Is it covered?

A pre-existing condition is an oral health condition, which existed before your enrollment in a dental program. The plan does not include an exclusion for pre-existing conditions.

Work in progress is dental work that was started prior to joining the plan. The dentist who started the dental work must complete work in progress after joining the dental plan. Work in progress is not covered.

What provider options do I have?

Under our dental plan, you can choose to visit any dentist from the Humana network, no primary care dentist required. There are more than 270,000 dentist locations on the Humana Dental PPO network. Simply present your Humana Dental identification (ID) card when you see your dentist. It contains all the information your dentist needs to submit your claims.

When can I start using my Plan?

You can start using your plan once it goes into effect - usually the 1st of the month following your enrollment (as long as the enrollment and payment is received within the enrollment deadline). Incomplete enrollment forms or failure to submit the required initial premium amount may cause an initial delay in issuance of insurance. Do not cancel any other insurance or assume you are insured under the Plan until you receive your certificate of insurance.

When will I receive my new member kit and what will it include?

After a member enrolls in this dental plan, an ID card will be sent via postal mail. Additional member materials, such as Certificate of Coverage and Summary of Benefits, are available to the member on Humanamember.com

Who can enroll in this plan?

You may enroll yourself and your dependents, provided you reside or work in the service area. The Service Area is the geographical area in which Humana has a panel of Contracted Dentists.

Dependents are:

  • Your unmarried children up to age 19 or age 26* if a full-time student and dependent upon you for support;
  • Your children who are incapable of self-sustaining employment due to developmental disability or physical handicap and who depend on you for their support and maintenance. You must furnish Humana with proof of dependent status, as provided by law.

(*limiting age may vary based upon state of residence)
