Dental Program Changes Effective January 1, 2015

For EPAUMC Retiree Participants:

The Conference was able to secure lower rates for our retiree dental program participants by changing carriers from MetLife to United Concordia Dental (UCCI) for the next plan year. If you are currently enrolled with MetLife and wish to maintain your dental coverage, you do not need to take any action. We will simply continue your current status with the new carrier.

If you are not enrolled and would like to add dental insurance for 2015, or if you are currently enrolled and would no longer like dental coverage, you must call Madeline González-López at (484) 762-8220 no later than 4:00pm on Friday, November 21, 2014.

The monthly rate for dental insurance through our new carrier, UCCI, will be $36.11 beginning January 1, 2015.   AmWins will collect your premium and distribute it to UCCI on your behalf. UCCI will mail a card to your home for proof of coverage.  The plan design will remain the same as years passed, and UCCI’s Alliance network includes more dentists than MetLife’s for our group.
