Who is a dental cover scheme for?
Some people cannot afford a full cover health cash plan, but want help towards paying for dental care. Some plans also include optical care. There are few dental cover plans as many providers argue that people can get dental and optical care within a package, and can limit what they spend by choosing one of the lower levels of benefit
What kinds of dental cover scheme are there?
There is no standard dental insurance policy, so each insurer differs on what they provide in the way of dental cover, what extras they include/exclude, and whether or not the dental plan has any choices. Most dental cover includes routine visits to the dentist, prescription charges or cosmetic work. Some policies cover emergency visits and/ or treatment following an accident, some do not.
Some dental cash plans also include Optical, which is visits to opticians. This usually includes costs of eyesight tests, prescription spectacles, and contact lenses. Cover usually excludes repairs to frames, non-prescription glasses and contact lens solutions.
