If you have a medical aid plan, it may be that your medical scheme only has a couple of dental benefits, the rest will be paid from your savings plan. If you have a hospital plan, dentistry usually is not covered.
By getting dental coverage, you can use it as gap cover when your medical aid wants to use your savings for dental bills. You can also use it if you have no medical scheme or a hospital plan only.
Depending on the type of plan you go for, you may have a benefit for the following:
- Emergency Root Canals
- Mouth Guards
- Bite Plate
- Scale and polish
The following will generally require pre-authorization (it may or may not be included, depends on your plan):
- Wisdom teeth removal
- Root Canal
Several insurers in South Africa provide dental coverage, some of them use network dentists, and with others, you are free to use any dentist.
