Dental Plans

CU offers three dental plans—one of which is specifically offered to university retirees and their surviving spouses who are older than 65. Employees may choose between an exclusive provider organization, in which services are covered only when seeing select providers, or a preferred provider organization, which allows members to see any dentists they choose, with slightly higher costs when seen by someone outside the provider network.
