Frequently Asked Questions

Q.

I see that the dental plan uses a preferred provider network. What does that mean for me? Can I still go to my own dentist?

A.

Having a preferred provider network allows members to receive a higher level of coverage if you utilize one of the preferred providers. You still have the flexibility and freedom to use any dentist. If the dentist you elect to use is not a preferred provider, you still receive coverage just at a lower level.

Q.

Will my dentist file a claim for me or will I have to do it?

A.

That depends on the dental office. A majority of dental offices will file the insurance claim themselves. However, some dental offices will not work with insurance claims. In that case you would have to file the claim yourself. The Delta dental plan does not determine how that works, it is strictly up to the dental office.

Q.

How much is my deductible and how does it work?

A.

The deductible under the dental PPO is $50 per person with a maximum deductible of $150 per family. The deductible is what you pay out of pocket first before there is any benefit coverage. Once you have met your deductible then the plan will pay according to the schedule of benefits of costs that are considered reasonable and customary, up until you have met your annual maximum of $1,500 per person. Once you have met your annual maximum then the dental PPO does not pay any additional claims for the remainder of the plan year for that person.
