The College offers full-time faculty, counselors and academic advisors dental care under the BCBS “Option 5” PPO dental plan that provides preventive, maintenance and simple restorative, and complex restorative dental benefits.
Dental Providers: By using participating (in-network) dentists, you can save money on your dental care expenses. Participating PPO dentists have agreed to not to bill members for any charges above the BCBS benefit allowance, except for any insurance or charges for noncovered services, which are the member’s responsibility. To locate an in-network dentist,go to www.nebraskablue.com, then click on "Member Services" to search the Dental GRID Network.
Plan Benefits: The BCBS “Option 5” PPO dental pays 100% allowable charges for eligible expenses including preventive dentistry (check-ups, x-rays), maintenance and simple restorative dentistry (such as extractions, fillings and root canals) and complex restorative dentistry (including crowns and bridges) if you visit a dentist in the dental network. If you visit an out-of-network dentist the plan pays 80% of allowable charges.
Effective Date: New employees must enroll within 31 days of employment and coverage becomes effective the first of the month following the beginning date of employment. Under BCBS dental, children are covered until age 26.
