Sarasota, Florida
Humana Dental Insurance review After using the program for 2 years (in Central Florida), with no claims we discovered that the company pays nothing for a crown. They say that they do pay for a dental extraction or a bridge or dentures. They provide 2 "free" dental cleaning sessions. One dental cleaning, paid out of pocket, costs less than a single month payment for the policy. So, since my family's teeth are in good health, it is far better to save the money and pay for the dental work outright. When a tooth loses part of the crown, good sense tells you to restore the tooth with a crown for health, rather than extract. Sure, it does not feel good to have to fork out a sizable payment for...

This company is a scam, they hide in the fine print that by signing up you agree to a 12 month contract, so when you find out they don't cover anything you need you can't even cancel and switch to a better insurance. They said it's based on my living in DC, so I'm not sure if this rule applies to everyone, but beware!

After 1 hour, 20 minutes & talking to 3 customer service reps, I still can't access my account. I rate Humana Dental Insurance's customer service at zero. How do I get help without another hour of wasting my time? So frustrating.

Everything sounds wonderful as far as coverage and discounts until you try to find a good dentist. I had 3 different butcher practices who only cared about how many pricey procedures they could charge me. One broke my jaw and tried to act like it wasn't her. FINALLY, I found a wonderful dentist who takes Humana ... 1 1/2 hours away who also told me exactly what I had to do right away and what could wait. I've spend over $20,000 on out of pocket dental care since I found him 3 years ago. The hacks missed out

SAVE YOU MONEY. This plan is worthless. Thought I was being smart by up-grading from my Medicare dental plan, thinking the coverage and benefits would be better and help lower my dental bills but no such luck. Other than their "negotiated" lower predeterimantion estimate cost, which ALL dental insurers do, any other help is & was nonexistent, leaving me with a monthly premium of $36.99 for a year & basically paying for a useless plan.Not to mention I had to call and beg 4 times just to receive my latest "predetermination". Even 3 dentists I have spoken with understood my disappointment & frustration & another stopped accepting any Humana dental plans, even if part of Medicare. I am a... Read More

I close my account. They reactivated my account without my permission, consent or authorization... Kept reactivating the closed account for a couple years, without permission, consent or authorization. Did not notice the theft being syphoned off each month for two years because it was a small amount from an account i rarely used. Discovered it - took over ten hours on the phone and two letters, over a six month period of time, just to have them tell me that they did not owe me anything. Completely messed up organization that doesn't know what the heck the departments within it are doing. Lie to customers, cheat customers, steal from customers and basically do identity theft and...

I cannot find dentist that is listed on the Humana website that ACTUALLY accepts the insurance. It is a double whammy when the dentist's office does not come clean about accepting the insurance until after the treatment. I do not have time to call every dentist in my area to find who accepts the insurance then find out what kind of rating he/she has. This is tantamount to fraud.

Telford, Tennessee
I have been paying for Humana dental for almost three years only to find that there was no dentist near me. Closes was 100 miles and they will not return money nor will they respond to letters.

My husband who is a veteran had Humana for veterans. It has to be the worse dental insurance in the world. They dropped our dentist in the middle of the year and we had no knowledge of it. They claim it was up to the dentist to notify us. So on the last appointment it was considered an out of network dentist. According to their website, they would pay 70% of the claim for out of network. Well, what they don't tell you, is they take $55.00 off the top. Depending on where you live it doesn't come out to 70% of the claim it actually was 1/4 after their fees that they don't make you aware of. You would make out better if you paid out of pocket for dental work. Just terrible.

Plano, Texas
All the reviews are right! It is fraud. My mom broke her tooth and bleed and I spent 3 hours looking on their website to find doctors who are no longer on their list. When I called and complain and told them they should update the information, the customer rep said that Monarch Dentistry has to file paper work to have it come off humana's list!? To top it off, the one current dentist that is on the list now does not reveal her education and where she went to school. For all the other dentists I have looked up, I can see their education level. I am very anxious about this predicament we are in right now. The dentists that I looked up didn't even have updated information online. They... Read More
