There are two dental plan options through Delta Dental Insurance.  When it comes to dental plans, you want to select a plan with benefits that fit the needs of you and your family.  Delta Dental PPO and HMO plans offer comprehensive dental coverage while retaining quality care and excellent customer service.  Each plan has its own advantages. 
About the PPO Plan
Delta Dental PPO is a Preferred Provider Organization plan that gives you the freedom to visit any licensed dentist.  To provide the lowest out-of-pocket cost, however, you are encouraged to seek care from a PPO network dentist.  The PPO Plan includes diagnostic and preventative care and has an annual maximum of $1,500 per family member.
About the HMO Plan
Delta Care HMO (also referred to as PMI or DHMO) offers cost-effective, comprehensive benefits through an established HMO network.  To provide the lowest out-of-pocket cost, the plan requires enrollees to select a participating dentist within the DeltaCare DHMO network.  There are no maximums on general services when you are covered by the DeltaCare DHMO plan.

Vision care is just as critical as medical care. The eyes can be a key to identifying other health-related issues you may have. RUSD's Vision plan is through EyeMed.  The Plan allows each member a vision exam, frames, and lenses every 12 months. Employees will receive richer benefits if an in-network provider is utilized.

Basic Life Insurance
Life insurance protects your family or other beneficiaries in the event of your death while you are still actively employed with the company. Rowland Unified School District pays for coverage, offered through MetLife. If your death is due to a covered accident or injury, your beneficiary will receive an additional amount through Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) coverage.
