ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- PlanSource announced today that dental insurance products from Cigna (NYSE: CI), a global health service company, are now available through the PlanSource Advantage program. Through this program, PlanSource enables employers to easily enroll their employees in a broader range of Cigna's products and services alongside their other benefits offerings through a configurable benefits administration system.
The PlanSource system makes it easier for employers to help their employees understand all of their benefit plan options. Employees are offered step-by-step guidance and personalized plan recommendations during the mobile-friendly benefits shopping and enrollment process. Content such as videos, documents, tools and messages can be personalized depending on consumer demographics, geographic location, family status and benefit elections, providing unique opportunities for consumer education about products and services.
Cigna offers flexible group dental plan designs and has a large network of dentists contracted at discounted fee arrangements, helping both employers and employees save money. Cigna group dental coverage encourages regular dental checkups and other preventive services to promote overall wellness and help reduce dental and medical costs associated with untreated periodontal disease.
"Regular visits to the dentist can help catch oral health problems before they become complicated to treat and can result in dental- and medical-related cost savings for individuals and their employers. Our goal is to make it as convenient as possible for customers to access affordable, quality oral health care," says Fred Scardellette, Vice President of Dental and Vision Business Operations for Cigna. "Including our dental benefits on the PlanSource platform provides another channel for helping individuals select the benefits that best meet their personal needs."
Cigna solutions such as Basic and Supplemental Life, AD&D, Long-Term and Short-Term Disability, Accident, Critical Illness and Hospital Indemnity insurance coverages became part of the PlanSource Advantage program in 2017. With the addition of Cigna's dental insurance products, employers can now offer their workers a more comprehensive range of valued insurance options from a single source.
"We are proud to share Cigna's deep commitment to improving health and well-being," said Dayne Williams, CEO of PlanSource. "It has been an honor to work with them to help companies manage and deliver innovative benefits that offer employees more options for financial security, choice and flexibility."
