Waiving Dental Waiting Periods

If a group is transferring their dental coverage to UnitedHealthcare and selected a waiting period for major services, they can get that waiting period waived for the initial enrolling employees if they provide the following information:

  1. 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.
  2. 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 Dental Waiting Periods flyer for more information.
