Your Health:



We offer dental coverage through the Marathon Petroleum Dental Plan (the Dental Plan), administered by Cigna. Under the plan, you can receive care from any licensed dentist; however you will save money when you visit a dentist in the Cigna Dental Preferred Provider Organization (DPPO) network, since these dentists have agreed to give plan members the largest discounts. Out-of-network dentists who participate in the Dental Network Savings Program (DNSP) have also agreed to offer discounts to Dental Plan members.

Dental Plan Information for Active Employees

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*.

Dental Plan Information for Pre-65 Retirees

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 can receive care from any licensed dentist. However, you can save more when you receive care from a dentist in the Cigna Dental Preferred Provider Organization (DPPO) Advantage Network, since these dentists have agreed to give Plan members the largest discounts.
