Health Insurance is designed to provide protection for you and your dependents in the event that you require medical care. Remember that you can help to keep your plan costs low. Although you are not required to see a network provider, your expenses will be less when you seek care within the network. Most importantly, make sure you understand your plan so that you can use your medical benefits wisely.
Dental Coverage is designed to provide protection to you and/or your family in the event that you require dental services during the year. Your plan is designed to encourage regular visits to your dentist, which is essential to maintaining oral health, and to provide coverage for basic diagnostic and preventive dental needs.
