The City has a self-funded dental plan, administered by Delta Dental. Participants may use any licensed dentist; however, they are encouraged to use in-network providers to receive the greatest benefit. Claims are paid based on usual and customary expenses; preventive dental work is paid at 100%. After a $25 per person, per year deductible, basic services are paid at 80% and major services are paid at 50%. The dental plan will pay a maximum of $1,250 per year (excluding orthodontia coverage). Orthodontia is payable at 50% of the cost (after deductible) to a lifetime maximum of $1500.
Dental insurance is provided to part-time benefited employees, who work a minimum of 20 hours per week, on a percentage basis according to the number of hours worked.
