Not for municipalities 

GIC Retiree Dental Plan

Metropolitan Life Insurance Company (MetLife) is the provider of the GIC Retiree Dental Plan.  The plan offers a fixed reimbursement for dental services:

  • Dental Examinations
  • Dental Cleanings
  • Fillings
  • Crowns
  • Dentures
  • Dental Implants

As a member of this plan, you may go to the dentist of your choice. However, you will save money by visiting one of the over 226,000 nationwide network of participating dentists.  When you visit a MetLife provider, your out-of-pocket expenses will be lower, as you usually pay the lower negotiated fee, even after you have exceeded your annual maximum. 

This is an entirely voluntary plan (retiree-pay-all) that provides GIC members with coverage at discounted group insurance rates through convenient pension deductions.  

Eligibility

All state retirees, Elderly Governmental Retirees (EGRs), survivors, GIC Retired Municipal Teachers (RMTs who do not participate in the municipal health-only program) and Retirees and Survivors from participating Municipalities are eligible for the GIC Retiree Dental Plan.

Enrollment

Eligible retirees and survivors may join during annual enrollment, when COBRA dental coverage ends, when they become a survivor of a GIC member, or at retirement. However, if you drop coverage, you can never re-enroll in the plan.
