Dental benefits increase in January

Tuesday, December 18, 2018

The University of Waterloo dental plan currently reimburses 80% of the cost of basic expenses as set out in the Ontario Dental Association (ODA) fee guide from two years ago (up to an annual maximum). Effective for treatments starting January 1, 2019, this reimbursement is increasing to 95% of the ODA’s current fee guide.

The move from the two-years-old fee guide to the current fee guide also affects major dental work and orthodontic work. Reimbursement for these costs should increase by 4-8%.

To find other benefit plan increases (the usual increases to the maximum per category), search your email for a message from the University on November 27, 2018, with the subject "Benefit Plan Increases, Effective January 1, 2019."
