Out-of-network dental care
You may go to any dentist of your choice. But an out-of-network dentist may cost more.
Your dental benefits will only cover some of the costs of your dental care at an out-of-network dentist. Your dental plan will only pay for covered services that are listed on the Nevada Dental Benefits (NDB) Schedule of Allowables. Also, there’s only a certain amount that your benefits pay for each service. You’re responsible for paying the rest. Call NDB at 702-478-2014 for more information.
You’ll save more money and get more benefits if you go to an in-network dentist instead.
