Dental Insurance Questions

Continuing your Dental Coverage

What happens to my dental insurance coverage if I move to another job?
If your new employer is not going to provide dental insurance as part of your benefit's package you will be looking at significantly higher premiums for individual dental insurance coverage. Your best bet? Be sure to 'carry forward' your dental insurance from your previous job for the full allotted time.

You are allowed to carry forward your dental insurance (just like your medical insurance) for 18 months to 36 months depending on your relationship to the insured and the reason for leaving the position. As long as you haven't been dismissed due to gross negligence, you should be able to continue with your dental insurance coverage. While you will be responsible for the full dental insurance premium, group rates are significantly less than individual rates. It's well worth it.

This is a tough situation.

This has been legislated under the Congressional Budget Reconciliation Act or COBRA. Definitely, carrying your dental insurance benefit's and medical insurance benefit's forward is in your best interest.

While it can be difficult to find the money for dental insurance premiums you will now have to pay the full premium for your insurance. You've lost the employer contribution when you lost your job. However, the premium on group dental insurance is much lower than individual insurance - so you will benefit by maintaining your group dental insurance coverage.

If you are going to maintain your dental insurance benefit's under COBRA, you must fill out the appropriate paper wo...
