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.
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.
