If I had dental coverage through another plan or will be losing coverage soon, can the waiting periods be waived?

Yes.   If you have had coverage within two months of enrolling in one of the NAR dental plans, the six month waiting period on Type 3 procedures and the 12 month waiting period on orthodontic benefits can be waived.   When enrolling, you will need to indicate that prior dental coverage existed for you and/or your covered dependents.   An ID card or EOB from the prior dental plan can be included to verify prior coverage and allow us to authorize the waiver of the waiting periods.
