Cigna Dental HMO offers second dental plan choice

The Cigna Dental HMO dental plan is offered, in addition to the Delta Dental plan for 2023, for the Regular and Transit ATU 587 employee benefit groups. With the Cigna Dental HMO plan, you choose a network dentist who manages your overall dental care. This plan has no deductible and no annual maximum benefit, which means there is no limit to the dollar amount they will pay per year. The Cigna plan covers two years of orthodontia treatment at a flat rate of $2,049 for kids and $2,553 for adults. For details and a dental plan comparison, see the Dental Plan Summary and go to the Cigna website for King County employees. If this plan is right for you and your family, sign up during Open Enrollment, Nov. 1–15.

Dental plan

Your dental coverage, through Delta Dental of Washington, encourages regular preventive care, helps you maintain healthy teeth and gums, and helps you pay for a broad range of other dental services when treatment is needed. 

Most dentists in Washington participate in a Delta Dental network and the chart below shows what you will pay when you see a network dentist. 

Your dental covers diagnostic and preventive services at 100%. For restorative services and crowns, the benefit plan increases what it pays through an incentive program. As long as you see a dentist at least once per year for a covered service, your benefit level increases each year until you reach the highest incentive level.

Vision plan 

Your vision benefits, through Vision Service Plan (VSP), make it easy for you to get the eye care you need.

You may use any eye care provider you want, but if you see a VSP provider, your out-of-pocket expenses are generally lower and the provider automatically files your claim. Kaiser Permanente provides routine vision exams under its medical plan, but none of the other vision benefits, such as frames, lenses, and contacts.
