The Dental Plan Year Is Changing

PUBLISHED: May 8, 2017

The Dental plan year (to use your Annual $1,500 maximum) is changing from a Calendar Year (January 1 to December 31) to a Fiscal Year (July 1 to June 30). This means that you have a new $1,500 available to you beginning on July 1, 2017, and available until June 30, 2018.

To utilize your Dental or Vision plan, you must give your provider your Employee ID# with three leading zeroes (i.e., if your Employee ID# is 987654, give your provider the number 000987654). Do not give your provider your Social Security Number to process your claim or verify coverage.
Open Enrollment Is May 1–13, 2017
