Dental Coverage

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.
