The Medial Center offers two Dental Plans:
State Dental Plan
The State Dental Plan, administered by BlueCross BlueShield of SC, is available to all benefits eligible-employees at no cost. Coverage may be purchased for employees' spouses and/or child(ren). Dental services are divided into four classes as defined below. Different deductibles and coverages apply to the services grouped within each class, as is shown in the chart below.
For More Information
Dental Plus is a supplemental plan to provide a higher level of dental coverage for dental services not covered under the State Dental Plan described above. Employees are responsible for the entire premium for this coverage, with no contribution from the state. However, premiums are pre-tax deductions.
Dental Plus is not an offset program that pays what the State Dental Plan does not. Instead, it covers the same procedures and services (except orthodontia) at the same percentage rate of coverage as the State Dental Plan. The difference is a higher dollar amount allowance for charges (at the 90th percentile for SC).
