Elevator Division Dental Plan

The Dental Benefit Plan of the Elevator Industry provides you with three optional programs from which you and your eligible dependents can choose to receive coverage as listed below. Please note, participants in the Dental Benefit Plan of the Electrical Industry should click here for information about their plan.

Plan Overview

This information provides the highlights of the Elevator Dental Benefit Plan, and is applicable to all three Plan options unless otherwise noted. Complete details are available in the Summary Plan Description (PDF, 289K).

Eligibility and Participation

You are eligible after 26 weeks of employer contributions. Once under full employment, you must be working full time for a contributing employer for 26 consecutive weeks immediately prior to incurring a reimbursable expense. If you were unemployed during any or all of this period, you must be registered for employment in order to be eligible for Plan benefits. If you are unemployed and registered for employment, you remain eligible for coverage for up to 39 weeks.

If you retire on a Early Standard, Standard, or Disability Pension from the Pension Plan (PHBP Trust Fund), you remain eligible for benefits under this Dental Plan. This benefit applies to your eligible dependents as well.

Eligibility for Your Dependents

You can cover your spouse and children. As a participant, you are able to cover your lawful spouse and children (adopted or biological). Stepchildren may be covered by purchasing COBRA.

Covered Services

Smile, we’ve got you covered. The Plan programs cover a wide range of services, including but not limited to basic and preventative care, prosthetics and orthodontic services. Refer to the Summary Plan Document (PDF, 289K) for a schedule of maximum allowances under the Empire BlueCross BlueShield Indemnity Program.


No pre-certification is needed for Empire Managed Network or DDS options.

Under the Empire BlueCross BlueShield Indemnity Program, pre-certification of benefits is required for all prosthetic and orthodontic procedures before treatment begins, but not for basic preventative services.
