Preventive Dental Coverage

All UPMC for Life plans include preventive dental coverage for oral exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Copay and dental allowance amounts vary by plan. Compare UPMC for Life plans in your area.

Visit one of our participating UPMC for Life Dental Advantage providers for the following preventive benefits:

  • Two oral exams and cleanings per year
  • One bitewing x-ray per year
  • One panoramic x-ray every 36 months
  • Dental allowance for many dental services like fillings, tooth extractions, bridges, crowns, and much more–some plans now include DENTURE coverage (not all plans include a dental allowance)
  • One comprehensive oral exam every 36 months

In most cases, you are responsible for all other charges beyond preventive care. Preventive care copays and the dental allowance are excluded from the yearly medical deductible, if applicable, and do not count toward the annual maximum out-of-pocket.
