Guardian Dental Plan Now Covers Implants

In 2011 the Welfare Fund trustees formed a committee to make common sense changes to the dental benefit within the Fund's current financial constraints. The Dental Committee decided it was feasible to remove the restriction on the coverage of dental implants, in recognition of the changes in implant technology and the consensus that a dental implant used to replace a missing tooth is often a more conservative alternative to a traditional fixed bridge.

As of January 1, 2012, the Guardian Dental reimbursement for pediatric (up to age 19) implant procedures is on a par with the reimbursement rates for other procedures covered by the plan. In another benefit enhancement, the 10-year restriction on replacing broken crowns was reduced to 5 years.
