An open enrollment period is held once each year to enroll, drop, or make changes in dental insurance. The open enrollment is usually mid-October through mid-November with changes effective January 1st of the following year. New employees must enroll within the first 31 days of employment. If enrollment does not occur in the first 31 days of employment, they will have to wait until the open enrollment period.
The Dental program has a group of participating dentist known as the Preferred Dental Provider (PDP) network. Participants still have freedom of choice on dental providers. Coinsurance, deductibles and maximums are identical for PDP and non-PDP services. However, the PDP accepts scheduled fees after the deductible and coinsurances are met as payment in full. If you choose a non-PDP provider you, are responsible for paying the difference between the amount the plan pays and the dentist's billed charges.
