Benefits for Retirees

Did you know that as a retiree, you can stretch your retirement dollars with our voluntary dental benefits? Medicare does not offer dental coverage and many times neither does your retirement benefit package. American Dental Plan membership is a great way to supplement and make your dental visits more affordable. Individual plans are only $59 per year. Members receive one exam and up to four x-rays free of charge with additional savings on cleanings, fillings, dentures, crowns, bridges, implants and more! More than 650 participating dentists and specialists offer substantial savings at offices throughout Arizona.

Take control over your own dental benefit package and visit American Dental Plan at www.arizdental.com for complete information on fee schedule, list of participating dentists and enrollment options. For faster service, contact customer service at 602 265-6677 during normal business hours.

Keep Smiling,

Good News for Employers and Employees!

As a long-term Arizona resident, it saddens me to see so many people out of work - and many companies having to cut hours, wages, positions and benefits. While unemployment continues to increase in Arizona, many families are faced with the decision on how to afford continued dental care after losing their job and their dental benefits. American Dental Plan, Arizona’s oldest voluntary dental benefit plan, is a viable solution for both employers and employees, whether full time, part time, seasonal or recently laid off or terminated.

When job security and health benefits are in question, it is a good idea for employees to assume their own responsibility for continued benefits and consider voluntary benefit programs as a pro-active alternative. This will ensure continuation of benefits in the event of job loss or a reduction of benefits from the employer.

One of the features of joining American Dental Plan is that billing and ID cards are sent directly to the employee’s residence instead of being handled through Human Resources. This also helps in the continuation of benefits regardless of employment status or retirement.

Membership in American Dental Plan starts at only $59 per year for individuals, and families can join for $99 per year. The dental plan provides one exam and 4 x-rays, per person per membership year, for no charge with savings up to 40% on cleanings, fillings, extractions, crowns, braces, implants and more! Members can select from our provider network of over 650 participating dentists through Arizona, including Specialists.

This dental plan is unique since there are no waiting periods, no claim forms, no deductibles or employment or age requirements. American Dental Plan has helped tens of thousands of Arizona families save hundreds of dollars every year on their dental care needs since 1978.

For complete information including the most recent fee schedule, list of participating dentists and an enrollment form, visit www.arizdental.com or contact Customer Service at American Dental Plan at (602) 265-6677. Follow us on twitter at http://twitter.com/arizdental.

We look forward to helping more Arizonans afford voluntary dental benefits.

To your health. Be well.
