Health, Dental & Vision Plans

- An unmarried child age 26 or over who is or becomes disabled and dependent upon you.
To be eligible for coverage under the plan, a dependent must reside within the United States.

FCPS offers two dental plans administered by Delta Dental. One is a Standard plan with an annual limit of $1000 per person per plan year and one is a buy-up option plan with an annual limit of $2000 per person per plan year.
