Dental and Vision Plans

Self-Funded Dental & Vision Plans

A Self-Funded Dental & Vision Plan is a smart solution to the high-cost associated with today’s fully insured dental & vision coverage. Under a fully-insured program, companies typically throw away thousands of dollars in premiums every year for dental & vision benefits that are rarely utilized by their plan members. 

Self-Funded Dental & Vision Plans give the employer more control over plan design, several customizable options, and an open access network. Employers also experience reduced overhead compared to managing a fully-insured plan. Plan Design features include:

  • Lower premiums
  • Ability to set co-pay plan options
  • Open provider choice
  • Compatibility with Section 125 plans
  • Suitable for employers of all sizes

Cost-Saving Plans

Typically, dental health services used or received per individual plan holder on an annual basis tend to run low. By implementing a plan that’s right for your company, cost savings from a self-funded dental plan will be visible within the first year.
