Plan Description, Limitations, and Exclusions & Exceptions:

Plan is a dental savings plan administered by Company and offered in affiliated dental practices and online through Plan website. Company is not a licensed insurer, health maintenance organization, or underwriter of health care services. Company is not licensed to provide and does not provide dental services. Members are eligible to receive discounts on dental services according to Plan Savings Schedule from affiliated Providers who have contracted with Company. Members are obligated to pay Providers for dental services at the time of service. No portion of any Provider’s fees will be reimbursed or otherwise paid by Company. Because some savings are based on a percentage of the individual Provider’s Retail UCR, actual savings may vary. Plan may not be used in conjunction with any other savings plan, discount program, or Dental/Medical Insurance. All savings amounts listed on Savings Schedule are current savings offered by Providers and are subject to change. From time to time, Providers may, at their own discretion, offer services or products to the general public at prices lower than the Savings Schedule prices available through Plan membership. Providers are solely responsible for the services and products received by Members, and Company disclaims any liability with respect to the provision of such services and products. It is Member’s responsibility to verify that a dental services provider is participating in Plan and/or specific procedure prior to receiving services. Company cannot guarantee the continued participation of any Provider. Company reserves the right to terminate any Provider’s participation in Plan at any time without notice to Members.
