Plan Details

AFSA offers two dental insurance plans. You can choose between the Scheduled Dental Plan and the PPO Dental Plan depending on your needs and budget.

Scheduled Dental Plan

The Scheduled Dental Plan provides a fixed price list for dental procedures, which can be found in the AFSA Group Dental Insurance brochure. The plan pays a flat dollar amount per covered dental procedure, as outlined in the policy. You can visit any provider, and MetLife will pay the lesser of the provider's actual charge or the amount listed on the price list.

Highlights

  • Annual maximums: You and your covered dependents are entitled to receive up to $1,000 each in dental benefits in any calendar year after the cash deductible is satisfied.
  • Deductibles: For the individual plan, an annual deductible of $50 must be met before benefits can begin. For the family plan, an annual deductible of $150 aggregate must be met before benefits can begin.
  • Reimbursement: You will be reimbursed according to the fixed price list for covered dental procedures, which can be found in the AFSA Group Dental Insurance brochure.
  • Coverage for your family: Spouse and dependent coverage is available. Dependents can be covered up to age 26.
  • Coverage for orthodontic services: Members can receive coverage for orthodontic services for children under age 19.
