The term “private dental insurance” (also commonly known as “commercial dental insurance”) typically refers to either individual dental insurance plans or dental plans offered through employers and/or private insurance companies. Public dental coverage is offered to eligible members of governmental health insurance programs, such as Medicare programs.
Humana offers a range of dental insurance and dental discount plans. Depending on your situation, you may choose an individual dental plan for yourself and your family, a Humana dental plan offered through your employer or supplemental dental benefits through Humana’s Medicare options.
One type of private dental insurance is coverage that you purchase for yourself and your family based on your unique needs. Humana offers a variety of dental insurance and dental discount plans based on your state of residence.
Another type of private dental insurance is group dental insurance that is offered to you and your family through your employer. With group dental insurance, an employer selects the dental insurance plans that employees can choose from. If you have questions about the dental coverage offered through your employer, please contact your employer directly.
If you are eligible for Medicare, you may select optional supplemental benefits to enhance your Medicare plan. These could include dental coverage, vision coverage and fitness programs.
