Dental Open Enrollment Update: 1.22.15 - 1.30.15 -
Due to the extremely high call volume for the new dental enrollment option for LAA Flight Attendants, the company will be adding 30 representatives beginning Friday, January 23rd to assist our workgroup with this enrollment. The chat and email options have also been made available to help alleviate the long wait times when calling the AA Benefits toll free line. If you choose to email or chat, you will need to provide your name, employee number, the words “Dental Standard Option,” and those who will be covered: (employee only; employee + spouse/domestic partner; or employee + family).
As of 2015, dependents up to the age of 26 may be carried on an employee’s dental insurance. If you are adding a dependent during this enrollment and s/he was not previously enrolled, additional steps may be required for proof of eligibility. To email HR, click here
If you take no action, your current dental election will remain unchanged.
Below are the details of the additional Dental Option being offered to LAA Flight Attendants:
"LAA Flight Attendants now have the option to enroll in a third dental option administered by MetLife. This option pays 100% of preventive care when you see a MetLife preferred provider. For basic or major dental care the plan will pay 80% of the negotiated rate (up to $1,500 per year) after a $50 deductible. The plan also offers a lifetime orthodontia benefit of up to $1,500 per person for both adults and children. For additional information and to compare all 3 dental options and rates visit and select Legacy American Airlines Flight Attendants. If you would like to enroll in this option for 2015 you must call the American Airlines Benefits Service Center between January 22, 2015, and January 30, 2015,  between 9am and 6pm central standard time. Please note: both coverage and deductions will be retroactive to January 1, 2015.

ABOUT APFA: The Association of Professional Flight Attendants, founded in 1977, represents the more than 24,000 active flight attendants at American Airlines. In November 2011, American’s parent company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Throughout the bankruptcy trial, APFA President Laura Glading served on the Unsecured Creditors’ Committee where she advocated for the American Airlines Flight Attendants. In February 2013, American and US Airways announced their intention to combine the carriers and on December 9, 2013, AA exited bankruptcy and the merger was final. Achieving a merger inside bankruptcy is unprecedented in the industry and would not have occurred without the efforts of American’s labor unions, particularly APFA.
