Dental Deductible & Annual Max
UHC dental plans run on a calendar year. This means that any applicable deductible and annual maximum will reset on January 1st.
UHC can "credit" the following items:
In order to credit these items, UHC would require a report from the prior carrier showing which employees fulfilled deductibles and other plan balances. These reports almost always include the members annual maximum and how much was used. If this is the case, UHC will also "debit" the annual max.
It is almost always in the favor to start with a fresh annual max, deductible and rollover account.
