No Annual Limit for Children under Age 18

Effective January 1, 2011 there is no longer an annual limit for covered dental services for children between birth and through age 17.  Orthodontics are covered under the Plan for dependent children up to age 26. The maximum lifetime orthodontia benefit for dependent children up to age 26 is $3,000. This $3,000 orthodontic maximum is in addition to the “regular” annual dental maximum of $3,000.

No Dental Deductible

Dental services are no longer applied to an annual deductible.

Preventive, Basic and Major (Restorative) Services

Participants and their covered family members that visit a participating dentist in the dental network will enjoy a higher percentage paid on services classified by the EWTF as Preventive and Major/Restorative Services. Although services classified by the EWTF as Basic Services are paid at the same percentage, participants that go to a non-participating dentist are also responsible for any charges above the allowed amount.
