Group dental coverage is provided to employees and their eligible dependents who are enrolled in any of the County's medical plans (Kern Legacy Share Select, Kern Legacy Network Plus, Kern Legacy Max Choice, Kern Legacy Classic Choice, or Kaiser Permanente). The employee may choose from two plans:
- A 'Preferred Provider' (PPO) plan. This plan pays 90% of the costs (after deductibles) for work done by in-network dentists and 70% of the costs for work done by out-of-network dentists.
- An HMO-type plan under which the employee selects one permanent dentist from a pre-approved list and has cost limits.
