An employee may opt-out of dental coverage plans, however, the employee is required to present documentation to Human Resources that verifies they are covered under another plan provided by a spouse or parent. Once the Human Resources Department has verified the employee's coverage, the employee will receive a bi-weekly opt-out credit of $2.50.
Please be advised opt-out selection is conditional upon providing documentation that clearly verifies your name, type of insurance coverage, and dates dental coverage is effective. A copy of your spouse's Open Enrollment selections, or a letter from your spouse's employer (on letterhead) substantiating the stated criteria would suffice as documentation of coverage.
Dental Insurance Card NOT Required
With Delta Dental there is no need for presentation of an insurance card. Just advise your provider that you have Delta Dental Insurance coverage. You may be asked to provide your Social Security number at the time of your dental appointment in order to verify your coverage.
