L.A. School District Renews MetLife Dental Benefits Plan
On Tuesday, the Los Angeles Unified School District's board authorized a one-year, $60 million contract renewal with MetLife, the district's dental insurance provider. Nearly 100,000 current and former L.A. Unified employees receive their dental benefits through MetLife. Two weeks ago, the school board rejected a three-year, multimillion dollar contract proposal from MetLife after a board member complained about the company's charges and services. The new contract requires MetLife to conduct annual satisfaction surveys and provide quarterly updates to district officials.
