RETIREE DENTAL INSURANCE
Retroactive to September 1, 2022, Arrow Benefits Group transferred the dental plan administration to Redwood Health Services in Santa Rosa.
Your new dental plan benefits with Redwood Health Services remain the same. You can also continue to use a non-network provider. A PPO network will be available for those outside the range of the current network.
Be sure to let your dentist know you have changed dental plan administrators. Give them your new identification card that you received in the mail so they can update your billing details.
Redwood Health Services will process and pay claims. You can check the status of claims or print a temporary card by logging in to: https://services.hi-techhealth.com/rhs/pages/member_signon.shtml

Santa Rosa Junior College offers a self-insured dental plan that includes more than 750 participating dentists. The annual dental benefit provided each benefit year is $1,700.00. The plan year is from October 1 to September 30. The District pays the entire monthly premium for full-time employees and eligible dependents. For employees working less than full-time, benefits will be pro-rated.
This dental plan is an incentive plan, which means that there’s an incentive for you to go to the dentist. For instance, for Preventative and Diagnostic Services (like teeth cleanings) all new subscribers start out at 80% coverage; if you go to the dentist during your 1st plan year (now through 9/30/2023), then you will move up to 90% coverage on 10/1/2023. Then if you go to the dentist from 10/1/2023 through 9/30/2024, you will move up to 100% coverage. Once you hit 100% you stay there. You have 3 covered teeth cleanings per year per person.
