Dental Plans

2023 Updates

We are pleased to offer two new PPO plans with expanded coverage including an increase in the annual maximum from $1,500 to $2,000 and 100% coverage for all preventive care including two cleanings and two exams. The current HMO plan is unchanged except that the maximum age for dependents has increased from age 24 to age 25 to align with our PPO plans and children up to age 13 can now go to a pediatric dentist.

For details, see the 2023 Dental Plan FAQs.

Pinellas County provides dental coverage to employees through Cigna. Group Dental Plan coverage is available to all permanent employees scheduled to work a minimum of 20 hours per week. Cigna offers two dental plans: HMO and PPO.
