You can choose from two plans—Delta Dental Basic and Delta Dental Plus—that cover all your dental needs, from routine exams and cleanings to major services like bridgework and crowns. Although you may see any dentist you like, when you visit a network dentist, you’ll pay less and you won’t have to file a claim.

Both plans feature:

  • A nationwide network of Delta Dental dentists
  • Discounted rates for using participating Delta Dental network dentists
  • Preventive services at no cost to you
  • Coverage for restorative services
  • An oral health enhancement option that provides two additional cleanings a year for people with periodontal disease
  • Fluoride treatment for children under the age of 19

The key difference is that Delta Dental Plus covers more services and pays a higher annual maximum benefit, so it costs more per paycheck. You can also choose to waive dental coverage.

The dental plan offers a Special Health Care Needs benefit for YNHHS members with intellectual and developmental disabilities to provide the care they need. Benefits include:

  • Additional exams and introductory/desensitization visits to learn what to expect during an exam;
  • Up to four hygiene visits per calendar year;
  • Dental case management; and
  • Anesthesia.

Predetermination of Benefits

Whether you are seeking services in- or out-of-network, if your procedure will cost more than $300, ask your provider to submit a pre-treatment estimate to Delta Dental. That way, you’ll know how much the plan will cover and how much you’ll need to pay. Call Delta Dental at 800-452-9310 with any questions.

Out-of-Network Dental Care

If you receive care from a dental provider outside the Delta Dental network:

  • You may pay more for services because non-participating dentists have not negotiated fee discounts with Delta Dental.
  • You may need to pay the dentist yourself and then submit a claim to be reimbursed by Delta Dental.
  • If you need to submit a dental claim yourself, ask your dentist for a standard American Dental Association claim form.
