The dental plan provides one option and is automatic with your medical election.  The plan provides coverage for preventive care through major services and includes orthodontia coverage.


The vision plan provides one option and is automatic with your medical election.  It provides coverage for examinations, eyeglasses and frames, contact lenses and laser vision correction.

Flexible Spending Accounts

Flexible spending accounts are used for health care and dependent care. These accounts let you set aside money to pay for your out-of-pocket health care and/or dependent day care expenses. Contributions are made on a pre-tax basis through payroll deduction. All reimbursements are tax-free.
