This is a reminder to all employees regarding your dental coverage.  San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools (SBCSS) dental plans is with Delta Dental of California.  This plan is a dental benefit incentive plan.

How does my Delta Dental incentive plan work? Your dental benefit incentive plan is designed to encourage regular visits to the dentist to keep your teeth and gums healthy. If you do not visit the dentist during a calendar year, your benefits will drop 10 percent beginning January 1. Seventy percent coverage is the lowest level.

For example:  If you are now at 100 percent coverage level, and you do not go the dentist during 2017, your benefits will drop to 90 percent for 2018.

The incentive rating is applied to family members separately.  his means if most of your family goes to the dentist before Dec. 31 each year and a dependent does not, then only the dependent will drop down by 10 percent in coverage beginning Jan. 1, 2018.  Hopefully, all staff with medical coverage and their dependents will go to the dentist in 2017.
