The Employee Benefits Group division of Sun Life Financial Inc., Wellesley Hills, Mass., has teamed with Humana Inc., Louisville, Ky. to offer dental plans to employer groups in selected markets.
The marketing agreement allows employers to purchase Humana’s dental HMO as the low-cost option on a dual-selection dental plan, with a Sun Life plan as the high-cost option.
The plans will be available through Sun Life in Texas, Florida and Illinois.
DHMO dental plans are offered by HumanaDental Insurance Company and underwritten by Humana subsidiaries CompBenefits Dental Inc., DentiCare Inc. and CompBenefits Company.
With the DHMO, a member may see a primary care dentist within the network as often as necessary. There are no yearly maximums, no deductibles to meet and no waiting periods.
Both the SunLife and Humana plans will be administered through Sun Life’s Plan Administrator Web portal. Employees will have access to either Sun Life’s or Humana’s plan member sites, including provider searches and online explanation of benefits.
