Effective 7/1/11 the calendar year maximum for the dental program has been increased to $1,200.  The increased maximum will apply to all services provided on or after 7/1/11.  
Expenses above the old maximum of $1,000 that were incurred before 7/1/2011 cannot be reimbursed. 

To clarify the implications of this higher annual maximum, (effective 7/1/2011) note the scenarios below. They serve as examples to illustrate how the increased maximum will be applied.

I’m also attaching an updated summary of the dental plan. My understanding is that all HR offices of the Community Colleges have received this summary and were supposed to communicate the changes to employees affected.
