These features are available on the Lincoln DentalConnect PPO plan

The Insurance Solutions division of Lincoln National has enhanced its dental coverage with the launch of new benefit features.

These features are available on the Lincoln DentalConnect PPO plan, which includes over 58,000 providers and over 105,000 provider locations.

Earlier this year, the coverage for dental implants and posterior composite fillings were added as optional benefits. The Lincoln DentalConnect product now delivers expanded options to plan sponsors, from low-cost coverage options to plans offering the benefits. These new benefits are available to employers through PPO plans.

Dave Swanson, vice president, product development for group protection, said: The differing plans, features and benefits allow the flexibility to create a customized design that will best suit a particular plan sponsor’s specific needs. We also can better match current plan designs, minimizing disruption to members.

The types of services covered include preventive, diagnostic, basic, major and orthodontic.

Group insurance products are issued by The Lincoln National Life Insurance, which does not solicit business in New York nor is it authorised to do so. In New York, group insurance products are issued by Lincoln Life & Annuity Company of New York. Both are Lincoln Financial Group companies.

The Group Insurance division of Lincoln Financial markets ancillary (non-medical) group and voluntary insurance products, including life and AD&D, long-term and short-term disability and dental programs through a national distribution system.
