Cornell University retiree dental coverage


Achieving and maintaining a bright and healthy smile can be expensive. Take advantage of your Ameritas dental benefits to help offset expenses. Compare plans and prices available in your area.


 Ameritas dental network: Our network includes more than 16,000 dental access points in New York, and more than 413,500 access points nationwide. Find a dental provider.


In-network vs. out-of-network: Your dental plan provides benefits whether your dentist is in- or out-of-network, giving you the freedom to visit any provider you choose. However, when you select an in-network dentist your out-of-pocket expenses are generally 10-30 percent lower, and there are no claim forms to complete. Network Savings


Dental Rewards®: Visiting the dentist annually for preventive care can increase your annual maximum benefit in the future. Members who don’t use much of their annual max can qualify to carry some of those unused dollars forward for use in future years. That way, the money is there when you need it most.


ID cards: access your personalized ID card via your secure member account, then print it or save it to your smartphone. Discover how online services can help you get the most from your benefits.


Explanation of Benefits (EOB): Receive e-mail EOB's instead of paper statements by selecting “go paperless” via your secure member account. You will get your benefit information faster and minimize your risk of identity theft.


Enrollment: Apply Online or call 800-887-9146 and speak with your ENV Agency representative to enroll by phone Monday-Friday 8am-5pm (EST).
