Basic Dental Plan
The Basic Dental Plan is designed with two goals in mind: to promote good dental hygiene through preventive care and to provide you with the dental care you need at a low cost. The Plan will cover a percentage of Usual and Customary (U&C) charges, including 100% of preventive claims. All in-network dentists have agreed to honor the negotiated rates; however, out-of-network dentists may charge more, leaving you with additional out-of-pocket expenses. The Basic Plan has an annual deductible of $50/person up to $150/family for Basic and Major Services.
