About Your Dental Benefits

Learn more about how to use your benefits below, according to your plan selection.

Delta Dental PPO


Available to full-time enrollees of Aetna PPO Plan A and B, the Aetna Medicare Advantage PPO Plan, and the Aetna Open Choice PPO Plan, the Delta Dental Dental PPO plan is designed to give you the freedom to receive dental care from any licensed dentist of your choice. Keep in mind, you’ll receive the highest level of benefit from the plan if you select an in-network PPO dentist versus an out-of-network dentist who has not agreed to provide services at the negotiated rate. Additionally, no claim forms are required when using in-network PPO dentists.

To find an in-network Delta Dental PPO dentist, go to www.deltadentalins.com and search the Provider Network, or call 866.499.3001.

UnitedHealthcare Dental HMO

Available to enrollees of any plan, UnitedHealthcare Dental HMO (Dental Direct) is unique for a DHMO dental plan. Part-time enrollees may only select this plan. You are not required to select a provider as long as you and your dependents go in-network. If you receive services from a provider outside of the approved network, you would be responsible for paying the entire dental bill yourself.

To find a UnitedHealthcare Dental HMO dentist, call 800.999.3367, or go to www.myuhc.com and follow these steps:

  1. Select “Find A Dentist”
  2. Type in “Fresno, CA”
  3. Select “CA Direct Compensation – “
  4. You can then search by address, city and state, zip code or by provider/dental practice name
Note:
  • Part-time employees are eligible to enroll in the UnitedHealthcare Dental HMO plan only.
  • Dual coverage is not allowed for the same dental plan If both you and your spouse are an employee of Fresno Unified School District and qualify for coverage as a Primary Enrollee, neither of you may enroll as a dependent of the other for the same dental plan. In addition, only one of you may enroll your dependent child(ren) in the same dental plan. However, if you and your spouse enroll in separate dental plans (i.e., one enrolls in Delta Dental and the other enrolls in UHC), you may cover your spouse and dependent child(ren) in each plan.

Coverage

These services are available to Delta Dental PPO and United Healthcare HMO plan members at various rates depending on your plan and choice of in-network or out-of-network care. Learn more about the services listed below and their respective copays in your Benefits packet.

Become a WellPATH Champion

    If your site is not listed, please include your location below.

    I agree to represent my school/department as the Wellness Champion for this school year. I understand the outlined roles and responsibilities of the Wellness Champion and will assist in the implementation and coordination of wellness initiatives. I agree to not only support the WellPATH Employee Wellness program by my participation, but to collaborate with my local management team to support the initiatives as well. I understand that the success of the program hinges on all employees being empowered to make informed decisions that positively impact their health. The WellPATH program can count on me to be a messenger and motivator and to help gather information from my co-workers, principals and managers to help foster a culture of wellness within Fresno Unified School District that supports good health. I also understand that I may be asked to assist in scheduling rooms and programs (including wellness screenings, seasonal influenza program) at my location, displaying WellPATH brochures, posters, etc. in appropriate areas, and encouraging my co-workers to be involved in the WellPATH Employee Wellness program.
