The Town of Longmeadow's Insurance Advisory Committee voted to change to Altus Dental effective 07/01/2014. All retirees were given a one time enrollment opportunity at that time. In order to have Dental coverage with the Town of Longmeadow a retiree would have to have enrolled for 07/01/2014 and maintained their premiums in good standing or would have had to have been covered as an employee and taken the coverage into retirement with them if their retirement date is after 07/01/2014.
Retirees must make their premium payments as agreed upon with our third party billing company, Dental Maintenance Services (DMS). Retirees are given the option of Quarterly, Semi-Annual, Annual and Monthly payments. If you default on your premiums, your plan will be subject to termination by DMS and you will not be allowed back onto the Town's dental plan.
All dental billing for retirees is done by DMS. Please contact them directly with any billing inquiries:
Dental Maintenance Services Inc. (DMS).
