Available for Full-Time and Part-Time Krispy Kremers
Unplanned dental expenses can really bite. That’s why you have two great dental coverage options to sink your teeth into.
You have two choices for dental coverage through Ameritas, the Core Option and the Premium Option.
The Core Option
The Core Option covers 100% of preventive care (like routine cleaning and exams) and 80% of basic care (like fillings) when you visit an Ameritas provider but does not cover major care (crowns and bridges) or orthodontia. The paycheck contributions are lower than they are for the Premium Option, but the annual benefit maximum (the total amount of expenses the plan will cover in a year) is lower.
The Premium Option
The Premium Option covers 100% of preventive care and 80% of basic care (similar to the Core Option) when you visit an Ameritas provider but it also covers 50% of reasonable and customary expenses related to major care and orthodontia. The paycheck contributions are higher than they are for the Core Option, but the annual benefit maximum is higher.
