2018 Dental and Vision Plans-AE

Review of employee medical and dental payroll contribution rates

Aetna will continue to be our dental plan carrier in 2018.  New for 2018, a second Premium Dental Plan option is available.  The Premium Dental plan features an increased member annual maximum reimbursement from the $1,000 offered under the existing standard plan to $1,500.  The premium Dental Plan also offers a separate $2,000 lifetime reimbursement per member for orthodontia coverage (available for both adults and children).

Note you will not receive an Aetna Dental ID card for either plan through the mail.  You may print one off of your Aetna Navigator Account or simply identify to your dentist that you now have Aetna as your dental carrier and give them your name, date of birth and either your Aetna member ID number (same as your medical ID number) or your social security number.

If your dentists office does not already have Aetna Dental’s claim office information it is:
Aetna
PO Box 14094
Lexington KY  40512-4094
Phone: 1-877-238-6200

Instructions for making changes

 

Aetna Vision Plan-view a short video (3 minutes) on the vision plan (Note it is dated 2017 but nothing has changed for 2018).

This is a voluntary plan that will assist with the cost of frames, lenses or contact lenses. A preventative annual vision visit will still be covered under the medical plan at 100 percent.  To get the highest level of benefit under the vision plan you will want to get your glasses or contact lenses from a participating network provider.  There are both national chains and local providers in the network.  To find a network provider near you please visit www.aetnavision.com or call Aetna Vision at 1-877-973-3238.

Review the vision plan summary  and the vision plan flyer for more details on the plan.  You can also use your vision benefit to get prescription sunglasses.
