Delta Dental PPO vs. Non-PPO Dentists

If you see a Delta Dental PPO Dentist:

  • PPO dentists agree to accept a reduced fee for PPO patients. You will usually pay the lowest amount for services when you visit a Delta Dental PPO dentist.
  • You are charged only the patient’s share at the time of treatment. Delta Dental pays the Plan’s portion directly to the dentist.
  • PPO dentists will complete claim forms and submit them for you at no charge.

If you see a non-PPO Delta Dental dentist (includes Delta Dental Premier Dentists and non-Delta Dental Dentists):

  • You are responsible for the difference between the allowed amount the Plan pays and the amount the dentist bills. You will usually have the highest out-of-pocket costs when you visit a non-Delta Dental PPO dentist. Premier dentists may not bill above Delta Dental’s approved amount, so your out-of-pocket costs may be lower than with non-Delta Dental dentists’ charges.
  • Non-Delta Dental dentists may require you to pay the entire amount of the bill in advance and wait for reimbursement. Premier dentists charge you only the patient’s share at the time of treatment.
  • You may have to complete and submit your own claim forms. Premier dentists will complete the claim forms and submit them for you at no charge.
