You may select coverage for yourself, your spouse, and/or your child(ren). Children are eligible for coverage up to age 26. If you and your spouse are both LSU employees, only one of you may enroll in Family coverage.

Basic Dental Plan

The Basic Dental Plan is designed with two goals in mind: to promote good dental hygiene through preventive care and to provide you with the dental care you need at a low cost. The Plan will cover a percentage of Usual and Customary (U&C) charges, including 100% of preventive claims. All in-network dentists have agreed to honor the negotiated rates; however, out-of-network dentists may charge more, leaving you with additional out-of-pocket expenses. The Basic Plan has an annual deductible of $50/person up to $150/family for Basic and Major Services.

Orthodontia is also included in the Enhanced Plan, making it a good choice for families with more extensive dental needs.
