Select and Select Plus Options with Delta Dental
- You may go to any dentist
- If you visit a Delta Dental PPO network dentist, they accept reduced fees for covered services they provide you, so you’ll usually pay the least when you visit a PPO network dentist. This also ensures Delta Dental PPO dentists won’t balance bill you the difference between the contracted amount and their usual fee.
- If you visit a non-Delta Dental dentist, they can balance bill you the difference between the amount of benefits payable by Delta Dental and the dentist charge for that service.
- Note: Orthodontia services for adults and dependent children are available through the Select Plus Plan only.
Dental HMO (DHMO) Plan: CIGNA Dental Care® (DHMO)
- No deductibles
- No annual dollar maximums
- No claim forms to file
- No ID cards required to receive care No age limit on sealants
- No referrals required to visit a network orthodontist or for children under 7 to visit a network pediatric dentist With the CIGNA DHMO, you’ll know exactly what you pay “copays” for covered services – even for specialty care with a referral approved for payment. Just choose a general dentist from the CIGNA DHMO network at enrollment and visit that dentist for all your dental care needs. Most Preventive services such as exams, x-rays and cleanings, are covered by a $0 or low copay (frequency limits may apply). Dental treatments such as fillings, crowns and root canals are covered reduced, fixed copays for covered services.
The CIGNA DHMO is only available to employees who live or work in the metropolitan Atlanta and select cities. Keep in mind, there is no out-of-network coverage with a DHMO plan; but finding a network dentist near you is easy when you use the “Provider Directory” at www.cigna.com . Your covered family members can each choose their own general dentists participating in the CIGNA network. After you enroll, you can change your general dentist anytime - online or by phone.
