The Trustees of the Benefit Trust are happy to announce that they have created a temporary out-of-pocket dental assistance benefit!
Anyone who is eligible for Carewell SEIU 503 dental benefits qualifies for this dental out-of-pocket benefit. This benefit will provide reimbursement for any out-of-pocket expenses (coinsurance and copays) for services covered under your 2021 Kaiser Permanente dental plan, up to the Kaiser plan maximum of $2500.
This benefit is available only for covered expenses incurred from January 1, 2021, through December 31, 2021, or until the designated funds for this benefit have been spent, whichever happens first. This means that if the designated funds are exhausted before December 31, 2021, some of your out-of-pocket dental expenses may not be reimbursed if they happened after the funds have all been spent. So don’t wait to sign up if you’ve had or know you will have dental services in 2021. And then schedule an appointment with Kaiser!
How does this benefit work?
To receive reimbursements for your out-of-pocket dental expenses, you need to submit the Dental Out-of-Pocket Reimbursement Program enrollment form. You only need to submit this form once.
Once we process your form, you will start receiving reimbursements for your out-of-pocket expenses (coinsurance and copays) for services covered under your Kaiser Permanente dental plan from January 1, 2021, through December 31, 2021.
How will you receive reimbursement?
- If you signed up for Direct Deposit, you should receive the payment in your bank account about three weeks after Kaiser sends the record of your charges to the Benefits Administrative Office (received weekly from Kaiser).
- Reimbursements by check will take about four weeks after Kaiser sends the record of your charges to the Benefits Administrative Office.
