While we don't require a pretreatment authorization form for any procedure, we recommend them for any dental work you consider expensive. As a smart consumer, it's best for you to know your share of the cost up front. Simply ask your dentist to submit the information for a pretreatment estimate to our customer relations department. We'll inform both you and your dentist of the exact amount your insurance will cover and the amount that you will be responsible for.

Dental Rewards

This dental plan includes a valuable feature that allows qualifying plan members to carryover part of their unused annual maximum. A member earns dental rewards by submitting at least one claim for dental expenses incurred during the benefit year, while staying at or under the threshold amount for benefits received for that year. Employees and their covered dependents may accumulate rewards up to the stated maximum carryover amount, and then use those rewards for any covered dental procedures subject to applicable coinsurance and plan provisions. If a plan member doesn't submit a dental claim during a benefit year, all accumulated rewards are lost. But he or she can begin earning rewards again the very next year.


Annual Maximum for Type 1, Type 2 and Type 3 Procedures $1,000
Annual Benefit Threshold (not exceeding this amount) $500
Annual Carry Over/Reward Toward Next Benefit Year $250
Next Benefit Year's Annual Max Plus Carry Over/Reward $1,250

Maximum Carry Over/Reward is unlimited (additional accumulation toward annual maximum).
