It’s fall which means that for federal employees it is time to re-evaluate their dental plan options. I’m a fan of the Metlife option (click here for it) because the max is big and it’s not that difficult of a plan to handle. From an administrative point of view I would take this opportunity to talk with any federal employee that is in the office about the high-option plan. You could also run a report of all of your federal employees and encourage them to contact you if they have any questions about choosing their dental plan. Of course that means you have to become familiar with the plans. Here’s a good starting point – the OPM’s site for Open Season.
