New TSO Dental Plan Implementation

After years of negotiations and persistence the MTA Board finally approved our enhanced dental plans at the June 24th Board Meeting. 

As part of the selection committee and with the help of our consulting team we were able to negotiate a far superior plan design for both the PPO and DHMO plans, increase the annual individual and family maximums, include coverage for dependent children up to age 26 regardless of their educational status, and include dental implant coverage.  We are the first group of employees to have dental implant coverage as part of our no cost to the member dental insurance.

We are very excited to have Cigna as both our PPO and DHMO provider.  Cigna has a vastly greater national network of providers for both plans.  This will provide greater access to in-network dentists for our members and retirees who live outside the metropolitan area.  Greater access and maximizing the number of dentist overlap from the current providers to our new plan providers was our top priority and made Cigna our number one choice.

We are working with Employees Benefits and Cigna on how the member enrollment will be implemented and hope to have the new plans in place by October 1st.

We will update this webpage as more information becomes available.
