Dental Benefit Update

Starting January 31, 2024, Aetna Better Health of New York will be covering crowns and root canals in certain circumstances so that you can keep more natural teeth.

In addition, replacement dentures and implants will only need a recommendation from your dentist to determine if they are necessary.  This will make it easier for you to access these dental services.
