Dental Plan Rates for Employees Working 75% or More of a Full-Time Schedule

You and the University share the cost of your coverage under the Dental Health Plan. The amount you pay each pay period for your coverage is listed below.  This information is updated each year.

Your share of the cost is the difference between the total cost of the coverage and the amount that Boston University pays.

How Dental Health Plan Contributions Are Paid

You pay for your portion of the contributions for your Dental Health Plan coverage with tax-free dollars. This is because Boston University automatically reduces your pay by the amount of your payments before federal income taxes, state income taxes and Social Security taxes are deducted.

Automatic before-tax premium payments are allowed under the provisions of Section 125 of the Internal Revenue Code. These are explained in more detail in the Flexible Benefits section of this site.
