Delta Dental Plan Overview
This page has information on Delta Dental. Delta Dental is available to all employees. It is not currently available for retirees.
With nearly 80% of practicing dentists in Delta’s networks, there is a good chance you already see a Delta Dental provider. To maximize your savings, it is important to be aware of the Delta network the dentist belongs to. Delta has three different networks of providers: PPO, Premier, and Non-Delta dentists. While you can visit any licensed dentist and still receive a benefit, you will save the most by visiting a Delta PPO or Premier dentist.
- Delta PPO Dental (Group # 2999-0011)
- Contact Information: 1-800-765-6003
Delta Dental PPO:
Visit a dentist in this network to maximize your savings. In general, you should expect to save about 30% on contracted services which will help reduce any out of pocket costs you may experience. PPO dentists have pre-negotiated their fees with Delta and have agreed not to balance bill Delta patients.
Non-Delta Dental Dentists:
While you will still receive a benefit from Delta while seeing an out-of-network dentist, these dentists do not have pre-negotiated rates with Delta. In addition, an out-of-network dentist may balance bill you the remainder of the bill Delta does not pay.
