Whether you’re already a Delta Dental member, a soon-to-be member or a prospective member, you might not know about Delta Dental’s Dual Network Advantage. Delta Dental of Virginia has two participating dentist networks – Delta Dental PPOSM and Delta Dental Premier®.
Delta Dental PPO is our preferred provider organization. Dentists who participate in Delta Dental PPO have agreed to accept lower reimbursements for services, resulting in lower out-of-pocket costs for you. Therefore, if your plan includes our PPO network, you’ll receive the largest discounts when you visit a Delta Dental PPO dentist.
Delta Dental Premier is the largest dental network in the nation, with 4 out of 5 dentists participating. These dentists have agreed to accept pre-negotiated fees for dental procedures, and can’t bill you above that amount. This offers you protection and peace of mind, and since Delta Dental Premier is the largest dentist network in the country, there’s a good chance your current dentist already participates with us. If you have a Delta Dental Premier plan, you may choose to visit any dentist, but your out-of-pocket costs will be lower if your dentist participates in Delta Dental Premier.
So, how do you know which network to choose?
To ensure services are covered and that you receive the greatest value for your dental benefits, it is important to visit a dentist that participates in the network listed in the upper right-hand corner of your ID card.
Most Delta Dental plans allow members to visit any dentist and still receive a level of benefits, but your out-of-pocket costs will likely be lower if you choose a dentist from the network indicated by your plan.
