ANNOUNCING VACEPlus RATES FOR 2015
We are pleased to share with you that for the third year in a row, there will be NO rate increase on the VACE dental plans. The 2015 rates for the Accident/Life package and the Vision plan are also unchanged!
Further, the dental plans now include the added benefit of “Double-Up Maximum,” which allows subscribers to increase their coverage dollar limits each year by carrying over unused maximums until they need them. More information on this new benefit can be found at www.vaceinsurance.com, where you will also find more information on all VACEPlus products and 2015 enrollment forms.
For a limited time, we are waiving the 18-month rule and will welcome back any former VACE group to the VACEplus program for January 1, 2015 provided they meet all eligibility criteria.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions. Thank you for your continued support of the VACEPlus program!
