Superior Dental Care Expands Dental Plan Options, Adds Exclusive Benefits
Enhanced benefit packages offer more value for employers and employees
Superior Dental Care (SDC) expanded ancillary benefit options for employers this year by introducing new lower-cost dental plans and bolstering the value-added extras that come with their plans.
In June, SDC announced new Fit 500 dental plans named for the $500 contract maximum benefit per member. Each of the four Fit 500 plans covers a targeted set of dental services with no deductible and lower monthly premiums than traditional comprehensive dental plans.
"The goal of our Fit 500 plans is to offer employers a lower-cost dental benefits option for employees who don't need or can't afford comprehensive coverage. Fit 500 plans have allowed employers to keep dental as a stand-alone benefit when funds are limited. Other employers have purchased these plans to offer their employees an economical alternative to a richer dental plan already in place. In such an unsteady healthcare market, our Fit 500 plans have stood out for their versatility and affordability," said Director of Sales and Service Shannon Ford.
In addition to the targeted dental plans, SDC added two new value-added benefits to all their dental plans in 2017: free prescription discount cards and a 10% discount on employee benefit administration and communication plans.
SDC's free prescription discount card allows members to save an average of 20% off the regular retail price of select prescription drugs at participating retail pharmacies. The discount card can be used any time a prescription is not covered by insurance, or as an alternative to insurance.
SDC also has recently partnered with the locally-based BusinessPlans Inc. SDC clients can receive a 10% discount* on customized employee benefit statements, reimbursement plan administration and COBRA administration services.
"SDC is dedicated to offering employers solutions that keep dental and other ancillary plans viable components of employee benefit packages. Special extras like Free Second Opinions, savings on cosmetic dental services, and vision and prescription discounts help employers provide a higher level of benefits to their employees without additional costs. As we move into 2018, we will continue to seek out even more ways to add extra value to our benefit packages to keep employers and their employees smiling," said SDC's Chief Executive Officer Traci Harrell.
