McClatchy offers two dental plans designed to provide our benefit-eligible employees with care to maintain their oral health. Additional information on dental coverage is listed below.
Basic Dental Plan
This plan offers the lowest cost monthly premium contribution since coverage is mostly limited to preventive and diagnostic services. However, the plan may also provide coverage in the event of a dental emergency to relieve pain.
Comprehensive Dental Plan
In addition to the services offered as part of the Basic Plan, the Comprehensive Dental Plan also includes coverage for basic/major restorative services and orthodontia for children under age 19.
The plan overview is designed to highlight some of the benefits available under the Comprehensive Dental plan.
The Summary Plan Description (SPD) is a detailed guide to what services the Comprehensive Plan plan covers and how the plan works.
