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.
McClatchy's dental plans, administered by Cigna, help make it easy for you to get the care you need. Both plans provide access to network providers at negotiated discount costs and cover preventive services, such as exams, cleanings and x-rays.
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.
