Dental insurance is designed to pay a portion of the costs associated with dental care. Dental insurance plans are grouped into three primary categories:
Indemnity plans that allows you to see any dentist you want and you are reimbursed for the covered expenses.
PPO plans that give you the choice of using a participating dentist or a non-par dentist. The OOP cost for par doctors is generally lower.
Dental Health Managed Organizations (DHMO) in which you are assigned or select an in-network dentist and/or in-network dental office and use the dental benefits in that network.
Group life insurance is a type of life insurance in which a single contract covers an entire group of people. Typically, the policy owner is an employer or an entity such as a labor organization, and the policy covers the employees or members of the group. Group life insurance is often provided as part of a complete employee benefit package. In most cases, the cost of group coverage is far less than what the employees or members would pay for a similar amount of individual protection. So if you are offered group life insurance through your employer or another group, you should usually take it, especially if you have no other life insurance or if your personal coverage is inadequate.
Vision insurance helps offset the costs of routine eye exams and also helps pay for vision correction wear, like eyeglasses or contacts, that may be prescribed by physicians or eye-care specialists.
