New Dental Insurance

The membership voted to make the change to the Dental Insurance that was proposed by BOCES. With 92 total votes, 89 yes and 3 no votes the proposal has passed. Coverage will begin with the new vendor on July 1st.

A note from Denise Varsik in HR:
Just remind members to send me the names of their dental provider if they are not in the provider directory; we can compile a list and ask The Standard to reach out to the providers to see if they are willing to participate. I also encourage employees to speak to their dental offices to ask if they would consider participating in the Ameritas dental network. It never hurts to inquire – BOCES is a very large employer in the area, it carries weight. Also, some of your members were trying to be proactive and do a provider search themselves, and wanted to know which network…it is Classic PPO.

Any questions regarding your coverage can be directed to Robin Eccleston in HR.

Thank you for your vote.
