How to Obtain Services
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.

Delta Dental PPO dentists will accept the Delta Dental PPO Maximum Plan Allowance (MPA) or the dentist’s fee, whichever is less (the PPO Allowed Amount) as payment in full for covered services. Co-payments and deductibles may also apply.

Delta Dental Premier dentists will accept the Delta Dental Premier MPA
(a slightly higher MPA) or the dentist’s total charge, whichever is less (Premier Allowed Amount), as payment in full for covered services. Co-payments and deductibles may also apply.

Non-participating dentists do not contract with Delta Dental to limit their costs. For services received from non-participating dentists, the employee may be responsible for these dentists’ total charges without limit by Delta Dental, including applicable co-payments and deductibles. Delta Dental will reimburse the employee for its portion of the Premier Allowed Amount. The total out-of-pocket payment is less if one goes to a PPO dentist, is more if one goes to a Premier dentist, and likely will be highest if one goes to a non-participating dentist.

Please call Delta Dental to find a participating dentist in your area at 1-800-932-0783, or visit

Employees who visit a dentist under the Delta Dental PPO Network or the Delta Dental Premier Network, will receive the benefit of increased plan year maximums.
