Dental Plan Improvements

The Benefit Fund is pleased to announce enhancements to the SOA dental plan fee schedule. The changes became effective on April 1, 2019. These improvements put us in line with the PBA Benefit Fund.  With the upgrade of over 80 fees, members who are utilizing out of network providers will receive an increase in reimbursement for covered services. For example, we have increased the annual x-ray maximum from $56 to $100 per year for each eligible member and/ or dependent. We have also added two additional procedure codes related to grafts and implants.

With the improvements to our plan, it is our hope to entice additional dentists to become participating in our network.

The new fee schedule is attached below and additionally, has been sent to our current participating providers.

A list of participating dentists is also attached below.
