Delta Dental has a Dental Advisory Committee, which includes licensed dentists in private practice.

Some policies may also be developed by the National Delta Dental Plans Association Dental Policy Committee and adopted by Delta Dental of Idaho.

Plans with both PPO and Premier coverage

If the treating dentist is participating with both PPO and Premier plans, and the dental coverage is PPO, payment is based on PPO fees. If the dentist is Premier-only, payment is based on Premier fees. Coverage can vary by plan.

If a claim is denied, how do I request reconsideration?

When claims are processed, you will receive a Claim Payment Statement. This statement explains how the services were processed.

How are my fees determined?

Fees are reviewed annually by Delta Dental and may be changed based on market conditions and claim analysis.

Who decides what the yearly maximum for services will be?

In most instances, the employer group, who is purchasing dental benefits for their employees, is the decision-maker regarding the benefits (co-pays, deductibles and maximums) to be offered to their employees.
