    2018 TEAMCARE HEALTH AND WELFARE BENEFIT IMPROVEMENTS

     

    DENTAL BENEFIT IMPROVEMENTS

    The following Dental Benefit improvements will become effective January 1, 2018:

    • ANNUAL MAXIMUM INCREASE - All active health plans that currently have a dental maximum of $1,500 per person per year or less will be increased to $2,500 per person per year.

    • CHILD ORTHODONTIA LIFETIME INCREASE - All active health plans that currently have a child orthodontic benefit with a lifetime maximum of $1,000 or $1,500 per covered child will be increased to a lifetime maximum of $2,500.

    • DENTAL IMPLANTS - For all health plans, dental implants will now be covered at the same benefit level as other major dental services (i.e. crown and bridgework) to the annual maximum allowed under your dental benefit.

       

    VISION BENEFIT IMPROVEMENTS

    The following Vision Benefit improvements will become effective March 1, 2018:

    • FRAMES - The allowance for frames in-network through EyeMed VisionCare will increase to $150 per person.

    • CONTACT LENSES - The allowance for contact lenses in-network through EyeMed VisionCare will increase to $120 per person.

    • LENSES - With the exception of the MM500 Plan, the in-network vision benefit through EyeMed VisionCare will now cover progressive lenses in full at no-cost to the member.

    • NETWORK - TeamCare has expanded the network with EyeMed VisionCare from the Advantage network to the Select network. The Select network has over 24,000 provider locations which is nearly double the current network.
