B. Dental Insurance
Westmont offers three dental programs in which eligible employees
and their dependents may participate. The college pays 100 percent
of the premium for the HMO dental plan for regular full-time employees
and contributes this amount toward the cost of the other two plans.
Employees pay any additional premium for their own dental coverage
or coverage for their dependents through payroll deduction. Regular
part-time employees are eligible to participate in any of the plans
by paying a minimum of one-half the cost for their own coverage and
the full cost of dependent coverage through payroll deduction. For
complete details on these plans refer to the Summary Plan Description(s).
For details on the premiums, see the Summary of Benefits. The effective
date of coverage varies depending on the plan chosen.
