Dental & vision plans
Information about King County employees' dental and vision insurance plans
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.

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.
