3 IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR UPMC for You DENTAL BENEFITS Please read this notice carefully to see how these changes affect your UPMC for You dental benefits.

4 What if you need dental services that require a benefit limit exception? UPMC for You can grant a Benefit Limit Exception if: You have a serious chronic illness or health condition and without the additional services, your life would be in danger; or You have a serious chronic illness or health condition and without the additional services, your health would get much worse; or You would need more expensive services if the exception is not granted; or, It would be against federal law for UPMC for You to deny the exception. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE DENTAL BENEFIT CHANGES, PLEASE CALL MEMBER SERVICES AT: UPMC for You Member Services at for Southwest or for Lehigh Capital (Lehigh Valley and Capital Region). TTY users should call toll-free at Representatives are available to help you Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. How do you get a benefit limit exception? Your dentist must ask for the exception. This can happen before the services start or after they are finished. Your dentist can ask for an exception up to 60 days after your dental services are finished. Your dentist must mail a written request to: Avesis UPMC for You P.O.
