In-Network and Out-of-Network Dentists
To find an in-network dentist near you, visit:
www.LincolnFinancial.com/FindADentist.

This plan lets you choose any dentist you wish. However,
your out-of-pocket costs are likely to be lower when you
choose an in-network dentist.

For example, if you need a crown…
…you pay a deductible (if applicable),
then 50% of the remaining
discounted fee for PPO members.
This is known as a PPO
contracted fee.
…you pay a deductible (if
applicable), then 50% of the
usual and customary fee,
which is the maximum
expense covered by the
plan. You are responsible
for the difference between
the usual and customary
fee and the dentist’s
billed charge.
