Dental Insurance Overview

Ameritas

ECISD dental insurance is administered by Ameritas Group.

 

The District offers two plans, Basic and Expanded Plan. The major difference between the two plans is in the Preventive Care provisions. These provisions are covered at 100% without a deductible on the Expanded Plan.

The District pays contributes $11.00 for the "employee only" coverage of either plan. The employer contribution is listed as ECISD Dental on your payroll check or pay advice. Deductibles apply for all services rendered.
