RADNOR, Pa., Oct. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE: LNC) today announced the launch of the Lincoln DentalConnect ®Family plan, a new dental plan designed to help employer groups with 2-50* employees work with certain requirements of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). The Lincoln DentalConnect ®Family plan is built on Lincoln's PPO platform and offers a variety of plans so employers can choose the right plan for their employees and their families.


To assist employer customers, Lincoln has developed the Lincoln DentalConnect ®Family plan, which offers pediatric dental benefits that satisfy the essential health benefits requirements of the ACA.

  • Pediatric children seamlessly transition to the adult plan (upon attaining adult age)
  • Medically necessary orthodontia benefits
  • Non-medically orthodontia benefits, available as a plan option
  • New expanded network access to 255,000 in-network dental provider locations, with more than 88,000 unique providers
  • Discount vision and hearing programs included at no additional charge

"In addition to offering employers and brokers quality group dental choices, we remain committed to delivering solutions that help ease the burden on the companies we do business with," said Chris Stevens, vice president, specialty health, Lincoln Financial Group. "We are pleased that we were able to design the Lincoln DentalConnect ®Family plan to help our employer customers work with the ACA –and offer their employees a dental benefit plan that helps them manage the cost of dental care for themselves and their families."

The Lincoln DentalConnect ®Family plan is approved and certified in: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
