Renaissance Offers Retiree Dental Care Option for Employers

March 11, 2009 ( - Renaissance Life & Health Insurance Company of America has introduced a dental insurance plan that enables employers to make an individual dental insurance policy available for their retirees with no cost, group contract, or administration.

According to a press release, Renaissance Dental Extend for Retirees is designed to be available through employers, and as rates were developed with that in mind, the plan provides more affordable options for retirees than plans typically available for individuals. It is intended to serve as a value-added insurance or to provide coverage not available under a Medicare Advantage plan.

The plan is available in all 50 states and offers participants full coverage on a self-paid basis. It includes a nationwide PPO network that reduces out-of-pocket costs but provides the flexibility to visit any licensed dentist, the announcement said.

Renaissance Dental Extend for Retirees also includes the Renaissance Value Card – a discount card offering savings on vision care, prescription medications and hearing care through relationships with EyeMed, Caremark and Beltone, respectively – provided at no charge with every policy.

“Renaissance Dental Extend for Retirees was developed as an option that organizations can easily and quickly make available to help their former employees maintain their dental health,” said Tom Dimmer, director of National Individual Sales for Renaissance America, in the announcement.
