Monmouth University offers a cafeteria-style dental plan through Delta Dental of New Jersey. Eligible full-time employees may select from: Delta Care (Flagship), which is a DMO; Delta Preferred PPO; or Delta Premier PPO.

Full-time employees are eligible as well as their spouse, civil union partner, and dependent children. Dependent children age out of the dental plan at the end of the month in which they turn 26. Enrollment can occur only when the employee is hired at his/her initial eligibility date, when a qualifying event occurs, or during an open enrollment period. Dental benefits may also be waived.

The University pays $10 toward the employee’s monthly premium. The employee is responsible for the remainder of the premium.

We are pleased to share two new Delta Dental benefit features
  • Carryover Max
    • This valuable benefit feature allows you to carry over a portion of your unused standard annual maximum benefit limit into the next year, and beyond.
    • Standard annual maximum dollars are used first. Carryover Max dollars are used after the standard annual maximum is met.

    • Eligible members must have a claim history or submit evidence of having periodontal surgery or periodontal scaling and root planing.
