How to Obtain Services
With Delta Dental you have completed freedom of choice in selecting a dentist. You can choose a dentist from the Delta Dental Premiere or Delta Dental PPO networks, or a dentist who does not participate in either network. Your choice of dentist can determine your cost savings.
Non-participating dentists do not contract with Delta Dental to limit their costs. For services received from non-participating dentists, you may be responsible for these dentists’ total charges withtout limit by Delta Dental, including applicable copayments and deductibles. Delta Dental will reimburse you for its portion of the PPO allowed amount.
To obtain Delta Dental (WVU Group # 1058WV) benefits, call a Delta Dental member dentist, identify yourself as a Delta Dental patient and make an appointment. The dentist office will verify the patient’s eligibility and plan coverage and obtain authorization from Dental Dental. If going to a non-participating dentist, employees should obtain a claim form to take with them. When using a non-participating dentist, employees usually have to pay dentist in full.
Note: Delta Dental does not mail ID cards to participants.
Most Delta Network dentists will verify participants using Social Security Numbers. However, you may print ID cards from Delta Dental’s website if you wish.
