Who is Eligible?

Benefits eligible employees, COBRA enrollees, and their eligible dependents.

Benefits eligible employees enrolling in the Choices Medical Plan must elect a Dental Plan (Basic Plan or Select Plan).  Note: the Basic Plan provides coverage for a limited range of services including diagnostic and preventive services. 

During Annual Enrollment, benefits eligible employees may change their Dental Plan option and add eligible dependent children to the Dental Plan.  Important Note:  Annual Enrollment for the Plan Year is Closed Enrollment for a legal spouse for Dental coverage unless there is a qualifying event.

MUS dental claims are reimbursed based on a fixed dental fee schedule.  The fee schedule’s fixed dollar amount is the maximum reimbursement amount paid by the Plan for the specified dental procedure code,  regardless of provider network.  Covered Dental Plan enrollees are responsible for the difference (if any) between the provider's charge and the fee schedule’s reimbursement amount.

MUS Dental Plan enrollees have the freedom of choice to visit any licensed dentist, however, out-of-pocket costs may be reduced if utilizing a Delta Dental Premier or PPO network dentist.

Refer to the Summary Plan Description (SPD) on the Choices home page for complete Dental Plan benefits, annual maximums, limitations, exclusions, and fee schedule information.
