Waiving Dental Waiting Period

  • Proof of prior coverage for major services: This requires a benefit summary, certificate of coverage or an explanation of benefits from the prior carrier showing coverage for major services.
  • Proof of prior coverage for the proceeding plan year: This could be in the form of a renewal from the prior carrier showing coverage dates or a recent bill and a year-old bill.



See UHC's Waiving the Waiting Period for a New Group flyer for more information.
