Dental Simplified

UnitedHealthcare wants to simplify the Dental sales process. They have created a new Dental Simplified portfolio which consists of metallic tiered DHMO and DPPO plans. They selected a high, medium and low option in each metallic tier. In addition, each tier includes a voluntary option.

Please refer to the Dental Simplified Portfolio guide to reference these new plan designs. All benefit summaries can be accessed on the LISI website.

It’s important to note:

  • DPPO Platinum plans are only available to groups with 10+ eligible and 8 enrolled. This is due to the orthodontic benefit. The minimum of 8 enrolled requirement applies regardless of whether the plan is offered standalone or as part of the dual option scenario.
  • DPPO Bronze plans are only available to groups of 2-9 eligible.

If the new Dental Simplified plans don’t fit your group’s needs, UnitedHealthcare will continue to provide a custom quote.  If you need a custom quote, please contact your LISI Regional Sales Manager to find out more.
