In our Dental and Vision care plans in the U.S., we have improved benefits to encourage preventive care and make it more affordable for low-income populations. The plan rewards employees for positive oral health behavior—such as routine cleanings and exams—by increasing a member’s annual maximum and/or coinsurance percentages, and/or by reducing plan deductibles.
Enhancements to Pet Insurance
Pets are an important part of our families and can contribute to individuals’ mental and physical well-being. However, according to MetLife and OnePoll research, pet parents spend more than $4,500 annually on pet care.2 To help pet owners manage the costs of their pet’s health, MetLife Pet Insurance introduced a new rewards program with LifeBalance, a discount network for employees and health plan members, to provide pet parents access to discounts and offers on pet care essentials.
Supporting Dental Care Access
To help open access for those without dental care, MetLife Foundation has made a $200,000 grant to Dental Lifeline Network, a nonprofit that provides free dental care to the most vulnerable communities in the U.S., including veterans, people with disabilities, elderly and medically fragile individuals.
