Dental

The Fund offers a Traditional Fee-for-Service Plan for full-time Bargaining Unit Employees.

With this Plan, you may schedule a dental appointment with any dentist.

JFTHW does not issue dental insurance cards.   Your dentist may contact the Fund office to verify your eligibility.

The Fund recommends a pre-treatment estimate for extensive dental work.

  • Any major dental services, such as, periodontal surgery, crown, bridge, inlay/onlay or implant are subject to review.
  • The pre-treatment estimate will give you an approximate amount covered by the Plan and the estimated out-of-pocket expenses you may incur.

The Dental Benefits Overview for JFTHW Fund Dental Plan gives a brief description of dental procedures, provides information about our schedule of dental benefits, lists limitations on certain procedures and information for orthodontic services.
