Automatic Transition To New Plans
For employees and eligible retirees who currently have health and/or dental insurance coverage through SCPS, the following automatic transitions will take place. If you accept your automatic transition, you will not need to make additional insurance changes during Open Enrollment.
Current Plan Automatic New Health Plan Automatic New Dental Plan
Key Care 100
(currently no dental included) Premium PPO
Key Care 15
(currently includes dental) Premium PPO Core Dental *
Key Care 30
(currently includes dental) Core PPO Core Dental *
(Anthem or Dominion**) Core Dental *
*The Core Dental Plan does not include orthodontic coverage. If you want orthodontic coverage for you or your dependents, you will want to enroll in the Premium Dental Plan. *
** Dominion Dental plans will no longer be offered effective October 1, 2016. Current Dominion Dental plan participants will be moved into Anthem Dental plans**
During this automatic transition, you will be enrolled into coverage with the same tier and the same covered dependents who were on your current plan. Example: If you have Key Care 15 Employee and Children Coverage on the current plan, you would transition to the Premium PPO Employee and Children Plan and the Core Dental Employee and Children Plan.
