Attention Retirees: Delta Dental comes to FOP in 2013

December 14, 2012

The Lodge has received many calls from retirees regarding telephone calls that they have received from Source One. Source One is a broker that handles the retiree dental plan. The FOP Insurance Committee has negotiated a rate that will save our retired members approximately $144 per year. This rate is locked in for two years. The FOP is eliminating the use of a third-party broker and dealing directly with one of the providers, Delta Dental of Illinois, a non-profit entity.

Retirees are being told by Source One that they will no longer have dental insurance as of January 1, 2013. This is not true. All retirees that are enrolled will automatically switch over to Delta Dental effective January 1, 2013. The Board of Directors unanimously voted to switch to Delta Dental, as it is a better plan, with more coverage, more dentists to choose from, and will cost our retirees less money. The calls you have received from Source One are, in the FOP’s opinion, just an attempt to frustrate and frighten our retired members. Any questions regarding dental insurance can be answered by Delta Dental at 1-800-323-1743.
