DENTAL INSURANCE PROGRAMS OFFERED
The Colleges provide a contributory dental PPO plan through Guardian. There are two levels of coverage available:
- High Option
- Low Option
Dental Claim Form - Aetna
Guardian Dental Claim - Guardian
You can pick any licensed dentist in their network or you can go outside the Guardian network. Either way, you'll enjoy no referrals and no need to choose a primary care dentist!
In-network or out? The choice is yours each time you need care. To save more, visit a network dentist. You will typically pay more if you visit a dentist outside the network.
Log on to Guardian's provider search directory at www.guardianlife.com to select a participating dentist. Or you can call the Members Services number listed on your Guardian card.
Employees must enroll within 30 days of their date of hire or a qualified change in family status. Coverage is effective the first of the month following the later of the date of hire or the completion of the enrollment forms.
