Guardian Dental Benefit Enhancement, July 1, 2022

Good news! The Fund Trustees have approved a significant enhancement to the Fund dental benefit for all members. Starting on July 1, 2022, both in-network and out-of-network reimbursements (the Fund's fee schedules) will be increased. Members using Guardian network dentists will have little to no copayments for many dental procedures and out-of-network dental charges will be further reduced by the Fund's higher reimbursement schedule. After carefully reviewing the utilization patterns of our members, the Fund Trustees decided the Welfare Fund's reimbursement rate for Guardian participating dentists would be designed to cover 90% to 100% of the average Guardian allowed in-network rate. The resulting enhanced reimbursement rate reduces, and in many cases eliminates, out-of-pocket expenses for members.
