Please note that as of October 1, 2014 New York City District Council of Carpenters Benefit Funds’ Members meeting eligibility requirements will be covered under the AETNA DMO plan described on the Fund's website.

Metrodent Premier Discount Dental Plan will be offered on a voluntary basis at a specially negotiated rate. You must enroll and pay for Metrodent access. You can also enroll at the Fund's discounted rate if you lose your dental coverage under the AETNA plan provided by the NYCDCC Benefit Funds and do not elect to continue your dental coverage with AETNA through COBRA. Family members who lose coverage, such as children who age out and do not elect to continue coverage through COBRA are eligible to join as well.

The Fund does not endorse or warranty your membership and your enrollment will be directly between you and the Metrodent Premier plan. You should also know you will not receive reimbursement under the Metrodent Dental Discount Plan.
