The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America, New York, is updating its group dental plans.[@@]
The insurer is appealing to employers throughout the United States by introducing 2 stripped-down dental plans and a “Maximum Rollover” feature that gives employees a kind of personal dental health reimbursement arrangement.
The new dental plans, the DentalGuard Basic and Basic Plus plans, were created as cheaper alternatives to Guardian’s richer DentalGuard plan. The Basic Plus plan is 10% less expensive than the original plan, and the Basic plan is 20% less expensive, Guardian says.
