Dental Plans


Baylor University offers two dental plans: Direct Reimbursement (DR) dental and QCD of America Discount plan (the Red or White Plan). All eligible faculty and staff may be covered under either plan at Baylor expense. Adding dependents to the DR dental plan and the QCD White plan will require a monthly premium.


Direct Reimbursement (DR) Dental

The DR dental plan features freedom to choose your own dentist or dental specialist. For additional information, you may want to view the Direct Reimbursement (DR) dental plan summary of benefits and Baylor's dental policy.


QCD of America Discount Plan - Red or White Option

The QCD Red plan is a managed cost dental and vision benefit program. The member pays an affiliated QCD dental provider at time of service according to the QCD Schedule of Program fees. All eligible dependents of the employee may be included under this plan at Baylor's expense.

The QCD White program is an enhanced managed cost dental and vision program. Members pay an affiliated QCD dental provider at the point of service according to the QCD Schedule of Program fees. The member submits a copy of the statement of services by fax to QCD for reimbursement. QCD reimburses the member for services listed by code on the White Reimbursable Fee Schedule.
