Dental and Orthodontia Coverage
The Dental Plan is designed to help employees and their family members maintain good dental health through regular preventive care and assist in paying larger dental expenses.
- Fiscal Year Deductible: $25 per covered person
- Coinsurance: Plan pays 80%, Employees pay 20%
- Benefit Maximum: $1000 per person per fiscal year
Each year, employees must satisfy a fiscal year deductible. After that, when covered dental charges are incurred, the plan pays a percentage of the customary and reasonable charges up to the benefit maximum. Employees are responsible for the coinsurance payment (and any amount over the customary and reasonable charge).
Refer to the Benefits Guide for a listing of Covered Dental Expenses.
