Delta Dental Coverage Availability & Fees
Although understanding dental insurance can often require a skilled expert who can decipher the verbiage and weed through the minute details, some basic facts can help when it comes to making decisions about your oral health.
- Most dental insurance plans offer their available benefits for a single calendar year. It is highly unlikely that any of your available funds will roll over into the new year, so you’ll want to make sure you use what is provided to you before your benefits expire.
- Most companies build their benefits based on a 100-80-50 format. What this means is that your preventive services (i.e., dental checkups and cleanings) are covered at 100%, minor restorative services (i.e., tooth-colored fillings) are covered at 80%, and major restorative services (i.e., root canals, tooth extractions) are covered at 50%. Not all policies are the same, so you’ll want to make sure about these percentages before agreeing to treatment.
- You have an annual maximum, which is the total amount your insurance company agrees to pay in a single year. If it appears you will go over that amount, our team may be able to spread out your treatments so that you do not have to pay additional money out of pocket.
- You have a deductible that you must meet each year before your dental insurance company will agree to pay more for the services you receive. Typically, deductibles are low (i.e., $50), but it’s important that once you meet it, you do not forgo necessary treatments, as you’ll pay much less.
All of these benefits are available should you choose to see an in-network dentist; however, this is not required. You have the option to see someone who is out of network, but you will be required to pay more in most cases.
