Two dental plans are offered through UnitedHealthcare. Employees have the option of choosing a Basic Dental Plan or an Enhanced Dental Plan. Participants may visit any licensed dentist with either plan. However, if the Enhanced Plan is selected, it is to the advantage of the plan participant to visit an in-network dentist.
Eligibility for Enrollment
Employees appointed for more than 120 days and 75% of full-time or greater are eligible for enrollment.
Effective date of Coverage
- New Employees have 30 days to either enroll or waive coverage. Coverage is effective on the first day of the month after completion of one full calendar month of employment.
- Employees who do not enroll within the first 30 days may elect to enroll during the Annual Enrollment period held in October of each year with an effective date of January 1.
