Fauquier offers two dental plans through Anthem Dental. The first plan is the high option and the second choice is the standard option.
- Anthem Dental plans – 1-888-315-2049
Both plans offer the same coverage for preventative and basic services. The difference between the two plan are that the high option covers 50% of major services (crowns, bridges, orthodontics) and the standard option does not cover these services. If an employee enrolls in the high option dental coverage, they will be required to stay with that coverage for a minimum of two years.

Group Life Insurance
Optional Group Life Insurance
The VRS optional group life insurance provider is Minnesota Life. Members who are covered for basic group life insurance may purchase optional group life insurance coverage in an amount equal to one, two, three, or four times salary, not to exceed $500,000. Members are responsible for paying the premiums for optional life insurance coverage through payroll deductions.
Participants must buy this coverage within 30 days from date of hire. Spouses may be added to the optional life insurance program within 30 days of marriage. Participants may add a newborn within 30 days of the date of birth.
If a participant does not purchase optional coverage as a new employee and later requests coverage, each family member to be covered must complete a health status declaration. Based on this information, Minnesota Life will decide whether or not to issue a policy.
The additional coverage ceases upon service termination (conversion option available) and upon retirement. Participants may continue coverage after retirement by applying within 30 days with the VRS.
