Is wisdom tooth removal (oral surgery) covered?
Depending upon your plan's benefits, oral surgery can fall under the Preventive, Basic or Major category. Refer to your certificate for your plan details.
A pre-operative x-ray film is required in order to review a surgical extraction because benefits are subject to our consultant's review. We recommend obtaining a pretreatment estimate for all dental work that you consider to be expensive. The estimate helps to eliminate misunderstandings by letting you know beforehand how much the plan can cover.
We also suggest submitting your oral surgery claim to your medical plan first as some medical plans have benefits for surgical extractions and general anesthesia or IV sedation.
