UnitedHealthcare has developed dental coverage guidelines to help us manage the benefits of the dental plan. These guidelines and guidelines are used for informational purposes and are not clinical advice. Treating dentists and other health care providers are solely responsible for determining the care they provide to their patients. Members should always consult their dentist or doctor before making decisions about dental or medical care. Our dental clinical guidelines express our determination about the effectiveness of a dental service (for example. B procedure or technology) based on published clinical evidence. They are also used to decide whether a specific dental performance is clinically necessary. As a general rule, services that are not required by clinical evidence such as experimental, experimental, unproven or clinical are not covered. The appearance of a dental service (z.B. procedure or technology) in the Dental Policy Bulletin does not mean that UnitedHealthcare supports dental performance. In the event of inconsistency or conflict between the information provided in the Dental Policy Update Bulletin and the published directive, the provisions of the published directive are given priority.

Dental Clinical Policies and Dental Coverage Guidelines are developed as needed, regularly checked and updated and may change. They represent a portion of the resources used to support decision-making in UnitedHealthcare coverage. The information contained in these guidelines and guidelines is considered accurate and up-to-date at the time of publication and is provided on the basis of „AS IS“.. In addition, UnitedHealthcare Third parties, including the American Dental Association and other peer organizations, can use tools developed to help us manage dental benefits. These guidelines are intended to be used in the independent clinical judgment of a qualified dentist or other health care provider and are not a practice of dentistry or dental counseling.
