Dental Plan Options

To help you pay for dental services, GE offers two Dental Care options for you and your family. The GE Dental Care options are not part of GE Health Benefits and have separate deductibles and co-insurance. Dental expenses do not count towards your GE Health Benefits deductible and co-insurance maximum.

  • The Dental Schedule Option covers a specified list of services and requires no weekly payroll deduction.
  • The Dental Premium Option pays additional benefits and requires a payroll deduction based on the number of covered dependents.

Please note that dental coverage is not available to non-college adult (19 years and older) dependents through GE Health Benefits except under certain circumstances. Dental coverage is only available to your dependents under GE Health Benefits if:

  • Your dependent is under age 19;
  • Your dependent is age 19 or 20, does not work full time and principally depends on you for financial support;
  • Your dependent is under age 25, a full time student and principally depends on you for financial support:
    or
    Your dependent is disabled

 

*The schedule of benefits lists the maximum amount the plan will pay for the specified dental procedures. One of three schedules—A, B or C—will apply, based on the location of your dentist’s office. Certain age, frequency and dollar limits also apply.

**Contribution rates may vary for part-time employees or employees of certain GE affiliate businesses.
