Dental Benefits (Delta)
All classified employees are eligible for dental insurance through Delta Dental. Delta Dental offers the following plans:
- PPO Dentists – Although the Delta Dental plan allows you the freedom to visit any licensed dentists, you’ll save more on your out-of-pocket costs when you visit a Delta Dental PPO dentist.
- Premier Network – The Delta Dental Premier network also provides cost-saving features and is the next best option when you can’t find a PPO dentist. The dentists you choose determine your costs. Premier dentists’ contracted fees are usually slightly higher than PPO dentists’ contracted fees.
- Non-Delta Dental Dentists – Non-Delta Dental dentists have no fee agreements with Delta Dental, so you will usually have the highest out-of-pocket costs when you visit a non-Delta Dental dentist. You are responsible for the difference between what Delta Dental pays and the dentist’s fee.
Visit www.deltadental.com to manage your dental plan. You can check benefits, go paperless with electronic dental benefits statements, print your ID card, and find the average costs of a dental procedure in your area.
