Your Dental Plan Features Dental Rewards, Hearing Care Benefits as well as LASIK Advantage Benefits.
Allows plan members to carryover part of their unused annual maximum. Earn dental rewards by submitting at least one claim for dental expenses incurred during the benefit year, while staying at or under the threshold amount for benefits received for that year. For additional details, please view the dental highlight sheet.
HEARING CARE BENEFITS
When enrolled in the dental plan, you are automatically enrolled in LASIK coverage. The LASIK benefits increase each year you are on the plan. This is a lifetime benefit and the payment is available only once per person. You must be 18 years of age or older and you can seek services at any facility. A 12 month late entrant period may apply.
