Your Dental Plan

Delta Dental DHMO Pre-Paid Plan

This plan provides dental care services at a fixed cost when you go to a dentist who is a member of Delta Dental's DHMO network. Similar to a medical HMO, the plan requires you and each of your covered dependents to choose a primary care dentist from Delta Dental's network. You must receive all your non-emergency dental care from your Delta Dental DHMO network dentist.

Delta Dental DPPO Plan

This plan is a preferred provider program that gives you the option of receiving treatment from any licensed dental provider you choose. If you go to a dentist who is a member of Delta Dental's DPPO network, you will receive a higher level of benefits and reduce your out-of-pocket costs. If you decide to go to a dentist outside of the DPPO network, the plan's benefits will be based on the Usual and Customary (U&C) charge for a particular dental service in your area. If your out-of-network dentist charges more than the U&C amount allowed by the plan, you have to pay the difference.

Balance Billing

When a provider bills you for the difference between the provider’s charge and the allowed amount. For example, if the provider’s charge is $100 and the allowed amount is $70, the provider may bill you for the remaining $30. This typically occurs when utilizing out-of-network or non-preferred providers.
