CHAPTER SIX: BENEFITS 6.9

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.
