Attention teachers and area school district employees:
As many of you already know, you are to expect some changes in your dental benefits for 2020. This is going to present a pretty substantial coverage change in regards to your dental plan.
If you are a patient of ours and plan to continue with us (which we really hope you do!), you must select the Uniform Delta Dental of WA dental insurance plan. The other two options of Willamette and DeltaCare will require you to see only providers in their specific facilities. Uniform Delta Dental of WA is the ONLY plan that will allow you to see the provider of your choice.
With that said, our school district employees have always had the absolute best coverage with very high maximums and coverage percentages. While the new Uniform plan is still great, it is likely going to have more out of pocket costs than what you may be accustomed to. Additionally, the plan includes a “no dual/non-duplication” clause for families with two insurance plans, which can affect total cost, as well.
If you are due to come in for your routine visits or have an outstanding treatment that needs to be done, now is the time to act. Again, this dental insurance change will begin in 2020.
Our Bainbridge Island and Bremerton teams will do everything they can to accommodate your schedule. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please give us a call at 360-373-2539. Current Dental is here to help!
