FlexAppeal Preventive MaxMultiplier

FlexAppeal Preventive MaxMultiplier encourages members to get regular preventive care because it pays for preventive and diagnostic care without applying those claims to the plan’s deductible or annual maximum.

That means employees and any family members on their plan can get treatments such as exams, cleanings and X-rays, as well as fluoride treatments and sealants for children, without having those claim dollars deducted from their annual maximum. The entire annual maximum is left for other dental care services, such as fillings and crowns.
