Dental plan changes

Today we received details regarding the new dental plan that will start Sept 1, 2020.

The new dental plan provider will be DELTA. Currently (on a good day) we have 400 dental providers, 4 pediatric dentists. With the new provider, we will 1800 dental providers, 59 pediatric providers, 1 implant reimbursement of $250 compared to $0 in the past.

For our members living out of NY and retirees, this plan is national, there will be 120k providers, 26k specialists. The dental plan will only allow $1700 worth of dental work yearly and $1840 for orthodontist work (kids & adults), a negotiated item that we will work to adjust/increase.

There are no co-payments unless you max out the benefits allotted for the year.

Each member will be receiving a welcome package from Delta dental with a membership card in the mail in the coming weeks.

More information to follow.
