Delta Dental Coverage Availability & Fees
Generally speaking, there are three types of Delta Dental benefits plans:
- Delta Dental PPOSM
- Delta Dental Premier®
- DeltaCare® USA (HMO)
Delta Dental PPO and Delta Dental Premier allow you to see any licensed dentist you choose; however, if you go somewhere in-network, you’re likely going to save more money. With DeltaCare USA, you must select a primary care dentist from within the network. The coverage you receive from Delta Dental depends on your plan, the dentist you visit, and the treatment you receive. Under most PPO and Premier plans, a specified percentage of the cost is paid by your insurance, and then the amount you owe depends on the dentist’s fees. Therefore, this means your costs may be lower when you visit our office since we’re in-network with Delta Dental!
Some plans use a table of allowances that shows the specific dollar amount paid for each procedure. You end up paying the difference between the allowance and your dentist’s accepted fee. Prepaid plans, like DeltaCare USA, often have set copayments for each service, so you can calculate how much you’ll owe beforehand. It’s also worth noting that most Delta Dental insurance plans work within a benefit period, which is often from January until the end of December of that year. It’s always important to be mindful of yearly maximums and limits for you and all of those on your plan, too.
