Other Benefits Offered along with Dental Insurance

Employee Assistance Plan

Guardian also provides an Employee Assistance Plan (PDF) to all members enrolled in the life, LTD and/or dental plans. Help with Health, Family, Legal and Financial issues is available online at IBH WorkLifeMatters and by phone at 1-800-386-7055. The website contains an abundance of helpful information including articles, videos, classes and more. Help is also available by phone and by referral to legal, counseling and other providers.

Vision Plan

If you enroll in Guardian Dental, vision benefits are covered through EyeMed at no extra charge. Keep in mind that the companies are separate—Guardian does Dental; EyeMed does eyewear.

You will receive an EyeMed ID card in the mail directly from EyeMed.

Please read this EyeMed Benefits Summary (PDF) for details of the coverage provided. Coverage is for lenses, frames, and contact lenses only.

EyeMed does not cover eye exams. (Routine eye exams are covered under the UUA Health Plan.)
