Eligibility Dental Cards Forms Cost Coverage Networks

Employee Dental Plan:  There is no option to add family members to the self-insured employee-only dental plan. 

Dependent Dental Plan:  There is no coverage for the employee in the fully-insured dependent-only dental plan.  A dependent is defined as a spouse or a child(under age 26) of the employee; no student or dependency requirements.

Effective Date of Coverage (both dental plans): 
  • First day of the calendar month that follows the month in which initial eligibility requirements are met and enrollment form is submitted.  Full-time employees are eligible upon completing six (6) continuous full calendar months.  Part-time employees are eligible upon working 1,000 hours.   
  • January 1st of the year following the open enrollment period in which an enrollment form is submitted.  Open enrollment generally begins the first business day in November and ends the last business day of November each year. 
  • First day of the calendar month that follows the month in which enrollment forms were submitted for a child who has not yet reached his/her 3rd birthday. 
  • First day of the calendar month that follows the month in which other dental coverage was lost as long as enrollment form was submitted within 30 days of loss of other coverage.  
  • Date of birth/adoption or marriage as long as enrollment form was submitted within 30 days of the birth/adoption or marriage.   

    Employees who separate from employment with the County for reasons other than gross misconduct may be eligible to extend coverage to their dependents for up to 18 months.  A child who loses dependent status, a divorced or surviving spouse and a surviving dependent(s) may be eligible to extend coverage for up to 36 months.  A disability may further extend benefits whether it is the employee or the dependent who suffers it.  Please inquire with your Employee Relations Department.
