Dental and Vision Insurance


Optional dental insurance and vision insurance plans, with the premium paid by the employee, are available for those who desire the coverage. Employees who elect the coverage may pay the full premium by payroll deduction, and may insure a spouse and dependent children from birth to 26 years of age, if a full time student.

Delta Dental Incorporated - www.deltadentalins.com

This dental insurance program allows employees the freedom to visit any licensed dentist of choice; however, there are advantages to visiting a Delta Dental PPO network dentist instead of an out-of-network dentist. The plan includes employee only and dependent coverage. Two options are available to employees with the dental plan: low option and high option. Both options offer similar benefits for diagnostic/preventive, basic and major services. Assigned co-insurance, annual limits, and monthly premiums will vary depending on the option elected. The employee is responsible for 100% premium for coverage in this plan.
