Small Business Portfolio

Our small business portfolio offers employers access to a variety of plan options often available only to large employers. Our plans don’t have hidden charges like network access fees, or one time administration charges. What’s more, we have plan options for small groups and small budgets including voluntary plans where employees pay the premiums.

Our small group portfolio offers two products – Delta Dental PPOSM and DeltaCare® USA – so that you can make the most of the value and cost protections through our large dentist networks.

Delta Dental PPO

  • Preferred provider organization plan.1
  • Network dentists accept reduced fees as payment in full and they cannot balance bill the patient.
  • Access to two of the nation’s largest dental networks – Delta Dental PPO and Delta Dental Premier®. Some PPO plan designs reimburse claims (in- and out-of-network) at our contracted PPO fees. Other plan designs offer different reimbursement features for non-PPO dentists that still contain cost control advantages for employers and enrollees.
  • Freedom to choose any dentist – no preauthorization or referral required.
  • Largest nationwide network of its kind, with more than 158,600 locations.
  • All of our network dentists make visits easy and convenient because they file claims and accept payment for services directly from Delta Dental. Employees are only responsible for their share of the treatment costs - they are never required to pay the entire claim up front.
  • Low network turnover – less than 3%.

Our PPO plans are available to all small businesses located in Alabama, California, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, Nevada, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas1, Utah and West Virginia.2

DeltaCare® USA

  • Pre-paid, DHMO-type dental plan.
  • Usually offered for a lower premium than PPO plans for small businesses.
  • Set copayments, no annual deductibles, and no maximums.

  • Greater managed costs within a comprehensive coverage package – more than 250 procedures covered.
  • Little or no cost for most preventive and diagnostic services.
