Dental insurance

Dental insurance is offered to benefit-earning employees and eligible dependents. The dental plan is administered by HealthPartners. This plan is not the same as the union-sponsored dental plan. To get information about the union dental plan, call AFSCME at 651-450-4990 or Teamsters at 612-378-8700.

If both you and your spouse are benefit-eligible employees of the county:

  • An employee cannot be covered both as an employee and a dependent.
  • Only one employee may cover their child/ren.

2016 coverage

The dental plan offers comprehensive benefits including orthodontia for children, in and out-of-network.  The provider network is tiered.  The tier of the provider you see will determine your out-of-pocket costs, such as deductibles and coinsurance.  Each covered family member may use providers in any tier.

Additional coverage for children 12 and younger is available through Little Partners.
