Dental Insurance Plans

There are two dental insurance plans available to MUSC employees. 

Basic State Dental

There is no cost to the employee for this  plan. There is a premium for spouse and/or child(ren). The focus of the State Dental Plan is to promote prevention through a reimbursement plan. The yearly maximum is $1,000.00 per person. There are four classes of dental coverage:

  • Class I - Preventive Services: 100% of Allowable Charges
  • Class II - Basic Services: 80% of Allowable Charges after $25 deductible
  • Class III - Prosthodontics: 50% of Allowable Charge after $25 deductible (implants are covered beginning 2013 based on the allowable)
  • Class IV - Orthodontics: 50% of Allowable Charge, $1000 Lifetime Benefit (only dependents under age 19 are eligible)
Dental Plus

Dental Plus is a supplemental plan to provide a higher level of dental coverage for you and your family. Dental Plus is applied to the level of coverage carried under the Basic State Dental Plan but subscribers must pay an additional premium and can only be added or dropped in October of the odd years, effective January 1st of the following year.

  • Same coverage as carried on Basic Plan, but with higher allowable charges
  • NO additional orthodontia benefits
  • Combined benefit year maximum benefit is $2,000 per person (Effective 2009)

Dental Insurance is administered by Blue Cross Blue Shield.  Review the SC PEBA webpage or Insurance Benefits Guide for detailed plan information.
