It's Your Choice 2016
Dental Coverage for 2016
Your employer may choose to offer Uniform Dental Benefits along with your health insurance coverage. Ask your benefits office about available options.
You will automatically be enrolled in Uniform Dental Benefits if your employer offers it. (You may opt out by filing an application/change form with ETF.) Uniform Dental Benefits are only available if you enroll in a health plan.
Employee premium contribution amounts are determined by your employer. Contact your benefits office for employee monthly premium contribution rates. The dental premium will be included in your medical health insurance premium.
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. You may opt out of Uniform Dental Benefits during open enrollment online using myETF Benefits or by submitting a health insurance application/change form.
Search Covered 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.
