Some features of Ameritas dental plans include orthodontic and cosmetic benefits, core/buy-up options, dual choice options and dental/vision combinations, according to Ameritas. Employers can offer their employees several Ameritas dental plans, such as Dental Rewards, Essential Dental, Sensible Dental and Value Source.
Ameritas offers orthodontic benefits for children and adults, a benefit that can be added to a dental plan, notes Ameritas. A dental plan may also include cosmetic features, such as teeth whitening and tooth-color composites on molars to improve overall smile appearance.
The core/buy-up option allows a member to purchase a dental plan at a base benefit with the choice of buying up to a richer benefit, per Ameritas. In this way, members can increase their plan benefits instead of being locked into just one. Dual choice is an option that allows employers to offer one plan with two choices, giving members the flexibility to choose a plan that is suitable for their needs.
Ameritas also offers a combination of dental and vision plans – Fusion: The Ultimate Choice, and Edge Dental and Vision, reports Ameritas. These two plans give members control to serve the needs of their families. Additionally, the Edge Series provides its own individual dental plans.
