You have access to comprehensive dental and vision benefits. You have one dental and two vision plans to choose from.
Delta Dental covers your dental care needs, from regular checkups to orthodontia. Under the Delta Dental Plan, you can use any licensed dentist, but your out-of-pocket costs will be lower when you use Premier dentists and the lowest when you use PPO dentists. If you use non-Delta dentists, you’re responsible for your percentage share plus any amounts the dentist charges above the usual and customary rate (UCR). Whatever dentist you use, the Plan pays 100% for all diagnostic and preventive care services (with no deductible), 80%–90% of basic care, 50%–60% of major care and 50% of orthodontic treatments (up to $2,000/lifetime per individual).
For treatment more than $300, have your dentist submit a predetermination of benefits to Delta Dental so you know how much your plan will pay before you receive services. Some services are not covered; review the Limitations section of the Delta Dental evidence of coverage [PDF].
VSP Vision Basic and VSP Vision Plus
The Basic and Plus Plans both cover most of your vision care needs. The Plus Plan offers lower copays for retinal screenings, a higher level of coverage for frames and contact lenses, and coverage for a second pair of glasses or contacts. While you receive the best overall benefits when seeing Vision Service Plan (VSP) network doctors, you also have access to VSP Retail Chain Affiliate Partners, including Costco Optical.
