The Vital Savings by Aetna program provides you access to a network of
participating dentists called “Aetna Dental Access.” This network of
dentists is comprised of dentists who are independent practicing dentists.

provider network composition is subject to change. Notice of the change

provide medical or dental care/treatment and is not responsible for
outcomes. All dental care is the responsibility of the treating dentist, in
consultation with you. Selection of a dentist is also the responsibility of
you and is not based on any representations by Aetna.
Dentists participating in the program network have agreed to make certain
dental services and supplies available to you on a “discounted service”
basis. The term “discounted service” means a dental service that is
available to you at a reduced cost from fees normally charged by the dental
provider and for which you are solely financially responsible. All payments
to dental providers are due and payable at the time of service, unless
another payment arrangement is mutually agreed upon between you and the
treating dental provider. You shall be subject to the treating dental
provider’s late payment and other office policies.

provider at the time you receive services.
Aetna shall in no
event be liable for any payment to a provider accessed
under the program or for the refusal of a provider to
accept the discounted service rates.
