DENTAL

Sunlife Dental Plan

Sunlife's dental plan provides comprehensive coverage to help you and your family maintain good dental health. Providers are part of the Sunlife dental network, or you may see an out-of-network dentist of your choice. Be aware that if you go out-of network, your costs could be higher.


See Sunlife Dental Summary below.

VISION

Voluntary Vision through Sunlife


DID YOU KNOW?

  • Eye exams can help detect serious eye and general health conditions sooner: high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol
  • Babies should receive their first professional eye exam at 6 months
  • 80% of learning in the first 12 years comes through the eyes


Live Oak Gottesman offers vision coverage through Sunlife using the VSP network to help pay for eye exams, prescription glasses and contact lenses. You receive a higher level of benefits when you see a provider in VSP's Network.


How do I use my vision benefit?


Once enrolled, simply tell your VSP doctor you’re a member and they will handle the rest. If you visit an in-network doctor for services and materials, you don’t need an ID card or have forms to complete.


How do I locate an in-network VSP doctor?

You will have access to the largest national network of private-practice eye care doctors in the industry through Vision Service Plan (VSP). There are three ways to find an in-network doctor:

1. Visit vsp.com and select the Choice network.

2. Call VSP at 800-877-7195.

3. Download our mobile app, Benefit Tools, and search

for a doctor near you.


What happens if I use an out-of-network doctor?

You will be required to pay the full amount to the doctor at time of service. You can then submit a claim for reimbursement, which is a lesser benefit when compared to visiting a VSP doctor.
