Delta Dental PPO (Point-of-Service)
|Question: What is the difference between a Delta Dental PPO dentist and a Premier dentist?
Answer: The Delta Dental plan offers two provider networks: Delta Dental PPO and Delta Dental Premier.
Your out-of-pocket costs are likely to be lower if you go to a Delta Dental PPO participating dentist. PPO dentists have agreed to accept payment according to a schedule established by Delta Dental, and, in most cases, this results in a reduction of their fees. Delta Dental also pays a higher percentage for most covered services if you go to a PPO dentist.
If your dentist is not a PPO dentist, you have back-up coverage through Delta Dental Premier. With a Premier dentist, your coverage levels will be slightly lower in most cases than with a PPO dentist, but you can still save money.
