Dental

  • Premium Plan

    Pays 100% of Preventive care (such as cleanings), 80% of basic services (like fillings, simple extractions, root canals, and periodontia), and 50% of major services (like crowns, bridges, and dentures) to an annual maximum of $2,000 per person. Orthodontia expenses are covered for both children and adults to a separate lifetime maximum of $2,000. You may use any dentist in this plan but save using a network dentist.
