* If you use only Delta Dental PPO dentists throughout the full calendar year, you will pay the lower deductible. If at any time you use a non-participating dentist or a Delta Dental dentist who is only in the Premier network, the higher deductible will apply. The maximum total deductible you will pay in any calendar year is $50/person or $150/family because you won't be required to pay a separate deductible for using both a PPO dentist and a Delta Dental Premier or non-participating dentist.
In addition to your coinsurance, you are responsible for any charges over what Delta Dental will allow. Please note that the annual deductible, annual maximum and orthodontia lifetime maximum are the same regardless of whether services are received by a Delta Dentist or non-participating dentist.
Reimbursement to members who do not use a Delta Dentist is based on the prevailing fee. The prevailing fee is the applicable percentage of the lesser of the fee charged or the fee which satisfies the majority of Delta Dentists for a single procedure as determined by Delta Dental of California.
