Cigna Dental PPO offers a national network and competitive discounts.  Get the highest annual benefit and the lowest out-of-pocket cost by using a Cigna PPO Advantage provider.  When looking for a contracted provider, it's best to refer to the Cigna site or contact customer service.  Many dental providers will take Cigna insurance, but that doesn't mean they have actually contracted with Cigna. One way to ensure you're getting the best benefit is to ask your provider if they will accept Cigna Advantage payments as payment in full.  If the answer is "no", you know you could receive a better benefit from another provider.

Pre-taxed Spending Options like HSA and Flex

ben_optum logo 1

Think of an HSA as a savings plan for health care you’ll need today, tomorrow and into the future. It works like a regular bank account, but you don’t pay federal income tax on the money you deposit. When you use your HSA money to pay for qualified medical expenses, you won’t pay income taxes on the money, either. You even build your savings into a nest egg for retirement.

Flex Spending Accounts (FSA) PowerPoint

FSA allows you to pay for qualified medical, dental and vision expenses using pre-tax dollars. FSA plans come with precautions. You can elect up to $2,750 annually, and must substantiate your expenses with an EOB (Explanation of Benefits).  Flex funds are "use or lose" so ensure you've elected an amount you feel comfortable you can spend in the year.

A Dependent Daycare Spending Account (DCAP) is a great way to save tax dollars on daycare expenses for your qualified dependents. By using your DCAP you can elect pre-tax deductions of up to $5,000 annually per household.  

Limited Purpose Flex Spending (LFSA) allows additional tax savings for those enrolled in the HSA. You can contribute up to $2,750 to this account.  The LFSA is restricted to dental and vision expenses.

It's important to set up your ASI Flex account online at in order to receive important notifications from ASI.  

In many cases, ASI Flex will ask for documentation to substantiate a claim.  If you receive a request or notification that information is needed, please send appropriate documentation for the claim.  A claim form with an itemized receipt or an EOB from the provider which details the expense, and can be uploaded through your ASI Flex online account. 

Flex Spending Plans are regulated by the IRS, and you should keep your documentation for every expense. You are encouraged to set up an ASIFlex account about 10 days after you have made your enrollment elections.  This is the easiest way to upload claims, monitor your account balances, and receive important notifications from ASI Flex.
