Dental Insurance Plans

Employees rank dental insurance as the 2nd most important benefit following medical coverage.1 Proper dental care is essential: Employed adults lose more than 164 million hours of work each year related to oral health problems. And more than 70% of American adults will have gum disease at some point in their lives.2

Offering dental coverage will benefit you and your employees. Highmark's customizable dental plans include benefits such as:

  • Access, to more than 96,000 dentists in more than 260,000 locations nationwide with United Concordia's provider network

  • Smile for Health wellness program for pregnant women and members with chronic conditions

Vision Insurance Plans

Vision problems result in $8 billion a year lost to sick days, and uncorrected vision can lower job performance by 20%. In fact, 90% of computer and mobile device users experience visual impairment issues.3 Providing vision plans to your employees ensures that they stay healthy and productive. Highmark's customizable vision plans include benefits such as:


  • Access to ophthalmologists, optometrists, and retail professionals in over 50,000 locations
