Dental Plan

$1,500 Supplement to Your LACERA PPO Dental Plan

Research has shown a direct connection between oral health and other health issues such as heart attacks and strokes. Yet, many seniors fail to maintain proper dental health and the #1 reason is due to the cost. This supplemental dental insurance helps with the costs associated with making sure you are healthy.

With dental work becoming more expensive every day, many retirees discover too late that their LACERA provided PPO dental plan does not cover all their costs. This supplemental Ameritas plan coordinates with your LACERA provided PPO plan, to help cover your out-of-pocket costs. It also covers procedures that may not be covered by your LACERA plan, for example, implants or additional cleanings above the number available under your primary insurance plan.

This plan pays a set dollar benefit for each procedure and allows you to see any dentist. Therefore, you will know up front exactly how much this insurance will pay! This full service plan covers over 360 dental procedures from the routine preventative, such as cleanings and x-rays, to the major, such as crowns, implants, and dentures.

There is no waiting period for any covered service provided you are covered under a LACERA dental plan. This plan can also be used as a full service, standalone plan should you or your dependent not have other coverage.

Every retiree / spouse / dependent enrolled in this plan will each receive a $1,500 maximum benefit per calendar year. There is a $50 deductible per person, once per calendar year.

The following is a list of generic procedure types and the maximum benefit that Ameritas will pay toward that procedure.
