Dayton, OH, February 26, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- As the leader in dental benefits, Superior Dental Care (SDC) recognizes the importance of proper dental care for children. That's why SDC is proud to introduce SDC-Kids plans just for children under age 19. Paired with great dental hygiene, SDC-Kids plans promote superior dental health...and they're now available!
SDC-Kids plans are federally certified dental plans that contain all of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) required pediatric oral essential health benefits (EHB). Both the high and low plans are designed around a maximum out-of-pocket expense and offer a full list of covered services through SDC's vast Preferred network of providers. For employers domiciled in Ohio with 50 or less eligible employees, SDC-Kids plans are a superior alternative to bundling the pediatric oral EHB with a group medical plan. Adding the pediatric oral EHB to a medical plan can substantially increase the premium…and can also mean significantly higher out-of-pocket maximums for employees. In contrast, adding one of the SDC-Kids plans to an SDC community-rated group dental plan ensures compliance with the pediatric oral EHB mandate at a combined rate that is just as competitive as our community-rated stand-alone dental plans! Fulfilling the ACA’s pediatric oral EHB requirement through a federally certified dental plan like SDC-Kids offers the most cost-savings for employers and their employees.
For groups wishing to simply satisfy ACA requirements, SDC-Kids plans may be sold separately as a stand-alone dental plan. Rates for SDC-Kids stand-alone plans as well as combined SDC-Kids and SDC group plans are available on the new SDC-Kids resource webpage through SDC’s online small group center.
SDC’s new SDC-Kids plans can help employers through the healthcare challenges they face in today's world...just another way SDC keeps employers and their employees smiling for a lifetime!
Superior Dental Care (SDC) was formed in 1986 by a group of dental professionals committed to promoting the affordable and quality dental care that everyone deserves. Today, SDC continues to lead the way in dental benefits throughout Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and beyond with this same mission. SDC’s federally certified SDC-Kids plans are standalone dental plans that contain all of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) required pediatric oral essential health benefits.
