Like many dental insurance plans, Delta Dental is a fee-for-service provider. That means you or your employer pay upfront for coverage and discounts on general and restorative services you can receive throughout the year. In exchange for a monthly premium which usually costs $50 for an individual and $150 for an individual, you may be eligible for up to $1,500 worth of care during a calendar year (once you have met your deductible).
It is important to remember that Delta Dental insurance is set on a calendar year and unused benefits will usually not rollover from one year to the next. Our office can help you maximize your coverage and strategically plan your care to reduce your out-of-pocket costs as much as possible.
The specific features of your plan will vary based on certain decisions made at the time of enrollment. For example, your employer may choose to lower their costs to have you pay a higher copay. Or, you may want to lower your own deductible to be eligible for more coverage throughout the year. In general, though, you can expect your plan to look something like this once you have met your deductible:
Visiting an in-network dentist will help to ensure that you receive the savings you are eligible for right away. There’s no paying out of pocket and waiting for a reimbursement to come weeks or even months later. When you visit a Delta Dental dentist, you can cash in on your benefits immediately.
