How Delta Dental Insurance Works
Delta Dental insurance is one of the most popular providers of dental benefits for families and individuals in the United States. In exchange for a monthly premium, or a fixed amount you agree to pay at the start of your contract, you are eligible to receive a number of necessary services for free or heavily discounted.
Just like with your medical insurance, dentists are either in-network or out-of-network with Delta Dental. While you are often still eligible for the same savings visiting a dentist who is not in your network (unlike with medical insurance), visiting an in-network provider is the easiest way to reduce out-of-pocket costs and make sure you receive the full benefit of your investment right away.
What Dental Insurance Covers
Your dental insurance helps make it easier to afford the services and treatments you need to keep all your teeth and maintain a healthy smile for life. The biggest focus is on prevention, with these services being completely covered in most cases. You can receive a checkup and cleaning every six months and an annual set of x-rays at no cost to you thanks to dental insurance coverage.
Here’s the scheme of most dental insurance plans:
- Preventive care (exams, basic cleanings, x-rays, fluoride treatments) 100% covered
- Basic restorative care (fillings, extractions, root canal) 80% covered
- Complex procedures and restorations (dental crowns, dentures) 50% covered
Maximizing Your Benefits
When you visit our office with Delta Dental insurance, we will begin by verifying your benefits. We place a call to Delta Dental to find out what your coverage includes, what your deductible is, and other important information. From there, we can go about helping you make the most out of your investment.
In general, make sure you are receiving two checkups and cleanings annually, as these treatments come at no cost to you. On the years you meet your deductible, you will want to get as close to your annual maximum as possible. Dental insurance benefits do not roll over from one year to the next. We can talk to you about strategic ways to use your insurance to make sure you don’t let your benefits slip away at the end of the calendar year.
