To qualify for the dental plan, new employees will serve a six month waiting period and if TERM or Permanent Part-time, must work a minimum of 37.5% of full-time hours.  Once eligible, dental costs incurred in the first six months are eligible for reimbursement.

This can be done through Group Net for Plan Members or the Great-West Life Banking Information Form. You may also complete the PEBA Extended Health Care Plan Employee Claim Form or submit your expenses on-line via GroupNet.
