Fine Print

Savings from enrolling in the MetLife PDP will depend on various factors, including how often participants visit the dentist and the cost for services rendered.

Plan provisions regarding eligibility and late entrants apply.

MetLife VisionAccess is a discount program and not an insured benefit. It is provided through Vision Service Plan (VSP), Rancho Cordova, CA. VSP is not affiliated with Metropolitan Life Insurance Company or its affiliates.

Deductible waived for diagnostic and preventive services for plans 1 and 2. Plan number 2 is not available in Mississippi and Texas.

Groups with no prior dental coverage, or without acceptable evidence of prior dental coverage can only choose plan 3.

Out-of-network benefits are payable for services rendered by a dentist who is not a participating provider. The Reasonable & Customary charge is based on whatever is lowest among (1) the dentist's actual charge, (2) the dentist's usual charge for the same or similar service or (3) the charge of similar dentists in the area for a similar service or services.


Metlife Dental provides decent savings on group plans and is especially useful for small businesses looking for dental coverage. However, this is subject to the availability of network and participating dentists in the area.

Terrible company, it takes 24 to 48 hours to speak to a supervisor, if you call up again and request to speak to a supervisor the clock starts all over again for an additional 24-48 hrs. They do not ensure your cost is sent to your FSA account you have to do that yourself. No one tells you that there is a problem with your claim you have to find that out yourself when you log in to the account, It take 10 to 15 days to process a claim, even after they have had the claim for a month already because of some SNAFU on there end. you would think that they would try and expedite the claim for you. Just trying to get through on the phone to speak to someone is a nightmare. They have to hire more people or upgrade to a better system

This company can not get the statements mailed out in a timely manner, if you get a invoice at all. Also the worst customer service I have seen.

I have Met Life thru the Commonwealth of MA. I pay $360 per yr for the plan. My max is ~1200 per yr coverage. About 5 weeks ago I had an abscessed tooth. Met Life paid ~$50 and I paid $190. Today I received a statement from them telling me I owe my dentist $40. They don't cover more that 2 oral exams per yr even if you have an emergency. I used up the 2 at the first cleaning and when I had the abscessed tooth. It did not cover the exam I had during the second cleaning. I did not have my bridge replaced beoause they would cover only $900 and I would pay the~3500+. MY DOG"S HEALTH INSURANCE COVERS HER AT 90%. This is NUTS! I am going in search of another dental plan. I am closin gout the year with ~$ 950 or unused cash which Met life get to pocket. Add that to the $360 I pd for the ins and they made money on me and countless others. Total $1310 in their pockets for 2016.

Metlife is the worst. They are terrible at claims. They deny them every single time. They get kicked back with completely irrelevant reasons. I have to call every. sinle. time. It's so annoying. I may as well not have insurance. Don't ever use them.
