Delta Dental PPO

Our dental plan takes advantage of network cost savings while continuing to offer a high-quality benefit. You may see any dentist you choose either in or out of the network. However, if you choose a network dentist you are assured your dentist will bill you for services at negotiated, discounted rates.

DELTA OFFERS 2 NETWORKS ALLOWING FOR MORE CHOICES

Effective January 1, 2017, Delta is the administrator for our dental plan networks and claims payment. Delta offers two large networks of providers in Indiana – Delta Dental PPO and Delta Dental Premier.  To find a network dentist in either network, use the provider directory found on their website www.deltadentalin.com or by calling their customer service at 800-524-0149.

What is the difference between the two networks? Though your benefit level for dental services will remain the same regardless of the participating status of the dentist, your out-of-pocket costs will likely be the lowest if you use a Delta Dental PPO provider. This is because Delta Dental PPO providers have agreed to accept a lower fee (in other words, they’ve agreed to a larger claim discount) than Delta Dental Premier dentists would accept. Because your copayments (if any) are based on a percentage of this fee, the dollar amount of the copayment will be lower if the dentist accepts a lower fee.

ADVANTAGES OF SEEING A NETWORK DENTIST

  1. Deductible will be waived for diagnostic and preventative services.
  2. Submit claims for you and payment will be sent directly to your dentist.
  3. Only charges you for your copayment and deductible, if any.
  4. Out-of-pocket costs are likely lower.

DISADVANTAGES OF SEEING A NON-NETWORK DENTIST

You can see any dentist you choose. But you should know that seeing a non-network dentist,

  1. they may require you to submit your own claims.
  2. you may be responsible for making full payments to your dentist at the time of service.
  3. Delta Dental will send you a reimbursement check for amount covered under your plan
