It's Your Choice 2016


State of Wisconsin
Group Health Insurance Program
(State Employees, Retirees, Continuants and Graduate Assistants)

Dental Coverage Optional for 2016

toothBeginning January 1, 2016, you can choose your health insurance, with or without Uniform Dental Benefits. You must have medical coverage under the State of Wisconsin Group Health Insurance Program in order to elect Uniform Dental Benefit plan coverage. If you are currently enrolled in a health plan, you will be automatically enrolled in Uniform Dental Benefits and can choose to opt out during the It’s Your Choice open enrollment period. New employees choose health insurance, with or without dental, during the application process.

Delta Dental is the plan administrator. Questions? Visit www.deltadentalwi.com/state-of-wi or call Delta Dental at 1-844-337-8383.

Uniform and Supplemental Dental

You will automatically be enrolled in Uniform Dental Benefits. Uniform Dental Benefits are only available if you enroll in a health plan. Supplemental dental insurance (e.g., EPIC Benefits+, EPIC Dental Wisconsin, Anthem DentalBlue) will remain separate, optional plan offerings.

Premium Contributions

The dental premium will be included in your medical health insurance premium. Reminder: If you are currently enrolled with medical coverage, you will be automatically enrolled in Uniform Dental Benefits. You can opt out during open enrollment.

Medical Coverage with Dental

If you elect family medical coverage with dental, you will be enrolled in the family dental coverage. Similarly, if you elect single medical coverage with dental, you will be enrolled in the single dental coverage.

Search Dental Providers

Delta Dental has two provider networks available under the Uniform Dental Benefit: Delta Dental PPO and Delta Dental Premier. Providers covered under these networks are considered “in-network” under the Uniform Dental Benefit. You may search the Provider Directory at www.deltadentalwi.com/provider-search/ to see if your dental provider is in a Delta Dental network. There is no benefit for out-of-network providers.

No Dental Deductible

Dental expenses, including those for the High Deductible Health Plan, are separate from medical benefits and will not be subject to a deductible.

Covered Services and Coinsurance

All covered services, copayments and/or coinsurance will be outlined in the Uniform Dental Benefit Certificate and on Delta Dental’s website and enrollment materials. There are no changes to the covered dental services, copayments and/or coinsurance for 2016.
