Dental

Our dental plans help you maintain good dental health through affordable options for preventive care, including regular checkups, and other dental work. Premium contributions for dental will be deducted from your paycheck on a pretax basis. The coverage you choose will determine your premium.

DHMO Plan

(California Only)

The DeltaCare USA plan provides dental services at little or no cost to you when you go to a network provider. Members select a Primary Care Dentist (PCD) who coordinates all of their care. There are no deductibles to pay under this plan, and no claim forms to fill out. For covered services, you pay a portion of the cost according to a copay schedule, which is available from the Linksys People Department or on The HUB.

DPPO Plan

The dental PPO gives you the option to go to any licensed provider. If you go to a dentist in the PPO network, this dentist will charge discounted fees. This means that you will pay the lowest out-of-pocket costs, and you won’t have to fill out any claim forms. If there are no Delta Dental PPO network dentists available, you can choose out-of-network providers from the Delta Dental Premier network. Delta Premier dentists also have negotiated fees, but discounts are not as much as with Delta PPO dentists. If you decide to see an out-of-network non-Delta provider, the plan will reimburse you based on Delta Dental’s program allowance for a particular dental service in your area. If your out-of-network dentist charges more than the program allowance covered by the plan, you will pay the difference. You will pay the full cost of services and complete a claim form for reimbursement. In addition, the plan covers three cleanings per year at no charge if you see a preferred provider.
