The Dental Plan provides coverage for many dental services that you and your eligible dependents may need. The plan offers both network (DMO) or out-of-network (PPO) coverage. Aetna Dental provides national network coverage for Prince George’s County Government through two networks: Aetna Dental DMO and Aetna Dental PPO. You receive greater benefit coverage when you use a provider who participates in the Aetna Dental participating network.
Aetna Dental DMO features:
If you enroll in the Aetna DMO plan you must select a Primary Care Dentist (PCD) to use your coverage. The PCD has primary responsibility for managing your dental care. Each DMO member must select a PCD. You can switch your selection as frequently as once per month. To designate your PCD, visit www.aetna.com and click “login”, call Member Services at 1-877-238-6200, or complete a PCD Election Form. If you choose a new PCD on or before the 15th of the month, the change will go into effect on the first day of the following month. For example, if you change your PCD on April 15, the change will take effect May 1, and if you change your PCD on April 16, the change will take effect on June 1.
