UHC Specialty Benefits enhances coverage of oral cancer screening

UnitedHealthcare (UHC) Specialty Benefits now covers all light-contrast technology-based oral cancer screening tests under its dental plans.

Light-contrast technology increases a dentist's ability to identify, evaluate, and monitor lesions that are difficult to see under conventional lighting, according to the Golden Valley, MN-based company.

"By covering this type of oral cancer screening, UnitedHealthcare Specialty Benefits dental unit is renewing its longstanding commitment to early detection of oral cancer," the company stated in a press release.

The company has covered brush biopsies since 2005.
