Effective July 1, 2015, LLCC will be utilizing a new dental insurance carrier, Cigna. Employees enrolled in dental insurance effective July 1, 2015 will be mailed new dental insurance cards to their home. Please be on the lookout for the new cards as they will likely be mailed in a plain, non-descript envelope and may appear to be junk mail at first glance. Once you receive your new dental insurance card, please securely discard your old card. To review a schedule of dental benefits, please click HERE.

In compliance with the Affordable Care Act, LLCC has provided a Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC) for each plan offered.
