Delta Dental Coverage & Availability
Like other dental insurance plans, Delta Dental offers a range of policies that fit your individual needs to ensure the dental treatment you need is covered. Most plans include complete coverage for preventive dentistry services like dental checkups and teeth cleanings. Restorative dentistry services like fillings, crowns, and dentures are also covered. The percentage of coverage you receive for these services usually diminishes with the complexity of the treatment. Minor restorations are usually covered between 70 and 80%, and more advanced dental services can receive anywhere from 20 to 75% coverage, depending on your policy. Other dental services like orthodontics and custom oral appliances, may also be covered for some patients, but we’ll need to review your plan to ensure benefits are available.
While Delta Dental and other dental insurance providers typically offer coverage whether or not you visit an in-network dentist, there may be some added costs associated with visiting a dental office outside of your network. Delta and other dental insurance providers set treatment pricing maximums, and they only cover a percentage of the cost of dental care up to these set fees. In-network dentists have agreed to pricing that falls within the insurer’s set price range, so you only have to pay the out of pocket percentage of treatment costs. Out of network dentists may charge fees that are higher than the maximums set by Delta Dental, but you’ll be responsible for the difference in pricing and your out of pocket treatment costs. In most cases, these differences in cost are minimal, but at an in-network dental office, you’ll never have to worry about these added fees.
