UnitedHealthcare Specialty Benefits will be covering a new oral cancer screening tool.

UnitedHealthcare Specialty Benefits, the dental insurance and ancillary benefits arm of UnitedHealth Group Inc., Minnetonka, Minn., is offering coverage for the Vizilite Plus test, a product from Zila Inc., Phoenix, that can help doctors detect oral abnormalities that could lead to cancer.

The move will make coverage for the test available to 21 million more people, Zila estimates.
