The Employee Benefits Group division of Sun Life Financial Inc. expands its dental plan offerings and Humana adds another sales outlet as a result of the two companies’ recent agreement. The marketing agreement allows employers to purchase Humana’s dental HMO (“DHMO”) as the low-cost option on a Dual Select Dental Plan, with a Sun Life plan as the high-cost option. Plans will be available through Sun Life in Texas, Florida and Illinois.

“We’re excited to expand our dental plan offerings through this new relationship,” says Sue Schoch, VP of dental products at Sun Life Financial. “Adding DHMO to our Dual Select Plans allows us to offer customers another option when choosing a comprehensive dental plan for their employees.” Schoch added, “Humana’s provider strength and tremendous reputation in these target markets made them a superior choice to round out our dental offerings.”

DHMO dental plans are offered by HumanaDental Insurance Co., and underwritten by CompBenefits Dental Inc., DentiCare Inc. and CompBenefits Co., all of which are Humana subsidiaries. With the DHMO, a member may see a primary care dentist, within the network, as often as necessary. There are no yearly maximums, no deductibles to meet and no waiting periods.

Both plans will be administered through Sun Life’s Plan Administrator Web portal. Employees have access to either Sun Life’s or Humana’s plan member sites, for user-friendly provider searches and online explanation of benefits.
