  • 2015 Dental & Vision Benefits - 1 day ago | 111 views

    Posted: 10/22/14 12:47 PM

    Second in a series offered by the Office of Human Resources (OHR)

    Insurance companies analyze complex factors in calculating premiums. Among the considerations are plan members’ utilization patterns and customary fees charged by area providers.

    Such trends affect rate changes employees will notice in 2015 dental and vision (supplemental) rates.

    A 3% discount and two-year rate guarantee for dental premiums is a reason to smile! Dental Care Plus (DCP) and its local provider network has committed to provide the same coverage at lower cost to Xavier employees through December 31, 2016. A slight rate increase with no change in plan design will be applied to the supplemental vision in 2015. Humana, which administers this benefit, also agreed to a two-year rate guarantee. (Voluntary supplemental vision extends coverage beyond routine eye exams included in medical plans and includes discounts on prescription lenses.)

    Detailed 2015 plan summaries and rates are available here.
