Uniform and Supplemental Dental
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) are separate, optional plan offerings.
The dental premium will be included in your medical health insurance premium. You will not see a separate deduction on your paycheck for Uniform Dental Benefit premiums.
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 covered under the Uniform Dental Benefit, 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 2017.
