Like most dental insurance companies, Cigna basically covers a biannual checkup and most of the cost of, say, cavities. Beyond that, you're on your own. The annual and lifetime cap is pretty modest, and hope that your child doesn't need orthodontics.

Cigna doesn't cover anything. They apparently think that their clients just love taking test and don't believe any of the tests and procedures are actually necessary. They've been so awful and we've paid out of pocket in full for every single thing. I don't understand what the half a thousand dollars a month was even for.

Delta dental has been a fantastic provider for dental insurance. All of my insurance needs and dental procedures have been covered through Delta dental and I find that their customer service line is extremely helpful. Most dentist offices that I have gone to have excepted Delta dental as a insurance provider which is amazing. I have no complaints when it comes to Delta dental as a dental insurance provider.

They double charged me for two policies, one from marketplace and one from personal policy. I had asked them to transfer market to personal and it seems it did not happen and they would not refund my money. Lack of honesty in the company and the customer service rep was terrible. Just another company out only to get your money.
