After twelve years of keeping our family dental rates at the same level, the board of trustees has made the difficult decision to raise our rates. For some time we have been paying out more money than we collect for the coverage of our dependents. To cover this shortfall the board has set new rates and structured them in a tiered format to reduce the burden to our membership. The cost for dental during the plan year that runs July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020 will be as follows:
Enrolling a dependent can only be done during the enrollment period of March 1 – 31. Dependents will be covered from July 1 - December 31st. If you don’t re-enroll each year, you are electing to drop coverage for your dependent Your dependent must then wait 3 years to re-enter the dental plan. Eligible dependent children are covered from birth to their 26th birthday if not eligible for dental coverage under another plan.
Please note that you use your variable benefit for the same year as the dental coverage is in effect, so it will be next year’s variable for next year’s dental coverage. A Variable Benefit Claim Form must be submitted w/ your dental enrollment. If you are planning on retiring, you are NOT eligible to do this and may need to pay the premium with your retirement plan premium at the time of renewal.
Questions about your benefits should be directed to your building trustee.
