The GIC Retiree Dental Plan is provided through MetLife. You can get reimbursed up to $1,250 a year for cleanings, fillings, crowns, and other dental services. You pay less if you receive care from one of 370,000 participating dentists nationwide. You pay more if you receive care from a non-participating dentist.
You pay the full cost of this voluntary coverage.
Retirees and survivors from the following municipalities that have elected to offer the plan are eligible:
- City of Melrose
- Town of Ashland
- Town of Bedford
- Town of Brookline
- Town of Holbrook
- Town of Marblehead
- Town of Middleborough
- Town of Millis
- Town of North Andover
- Town of Randolph
- Town of Swampscott
- Town of Weston
- Town of Westwood
- Athol Royalston School District
- Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational School District
If your municipality is not listed, you are not eligible for GIC Retiree Dental benefits. Contact your municipal benefits office for additional information.
Eligible retirees and survivors may join during Annual Enrollment, or within 60 days of a qualifying status change, such as when COBRA dental coverage ends, when you become a survivor of a GIC member, or at retirement.
If you drop GIC Retiree Dental Coverage, you may never re-enroll.
