The supplemental dental plans change effective January 1, 2019. Two supplemental dental plans through Delta Dental are available. The Delta Dental plans replace the supplemental dental plans through EPIC Specialty Benefits (EPIC Benefits+ and Dental WI) which end on December 31, 2018.
Eligible employees have two supplemental dental plans available to them through Delta Dental; however, you may only enroll in one of them. Both plans offer comprehensive dental coverage, providing you and your family the opportunity to utilize a broad network and choose a dental benefit that meets your needs.
Delta Dental plan options:
- PPO – Select
- PPO Plus Premier – Select Plus
The primary differences between the two plans are the provider networks, premium cost, annual maximums and whether orthodontia is covered (Select Plus Plan only). Both plans provide coverage for major services, such as crowns and implants, but do not cover preventive or basic services, such as cleanings and fillings. If you need coverage for preventive and/or basic services, you should consider enrolling in Uniform Dental.
You can find more information and details in the Plan Brochure and Dental Comparison Chart located in the Forms & Resources section below.
You may see the dentist of your choice but will have lower out-of-pocket costs if you see in-network dentists. Not sure if your dentist is a Delta Dental participating provider? Call Delta Dental at 800-236-3712, visit Delta Dental at deltadentalwi.com/state-of-wi, or contact your dentist directly.
You must meet the following requirements to be eligible for this plan:
- Eligible for State Group Health Insurance, and
- Are not receiving a Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) annuity.
For detailed information regarding who you can cover on this plan, see the Dependent Eligibility Grid under Forms & Resources.
You have 30 days from your date of employment or your newly benefits-eligible job to enroll yourself and eligible family members in a supplemental dental plan through Delta Dental. Your coverage will begin on the first of the month on or following your eligibility date.
If you do not enroll in a supplemental dental plan or did not include dependents on your plan during your initial 30-day enrollment period, you may enroll when offered during the Annual Benefits Enrollment period or if you have a qualifying life event. See Life Events for more information.
Once you are enrolled in a supplemental dental plan, you must remain enrolled for the calendar year.
