Introduction

We offer dental coverage through the Marathon Petroleum Dental Plan (the Dental Plan). Under the plan, you can receive care from any licensed dentist; however you will save money when you visit a dentist in the Delta Dental network, since these dentists have agreed to give plan members the largest discounts.

Active Employees Dental Plan

When you visit a network dentist, the plan pays all or a portion of the negotiated cost of the service. When you visit an out-of-network dentist, the plan pays all or a portion of the Reasonable and Customary (R&C) charge*.

Pre-65 Retirees Dental Plan Rates

Retirees under age 65 are eligible for dental coverage that is similar to the coverage provided to MPC active employees. The individual calendar year maximum is different for pre-65 retirees, and so are the contribution amounts for coverage. For information on monthly contributions for COBRA coverage under the active dental plan, see COBRA Rates.

Under this Plan, you are encouraged to receive care from a dentist in the Delta Dental PPO Network, or the Delta Dental Premier Network.
