Join the journey: Help us pilot a program for new network dentists

We want your feedback! In 2021 we’re launching Provider Digital Journey, a program to support dentists new to our networks and walk them through the digital resources available to them.

But to ensure the program successfully serves our dentists and their staff, we need your input.

We’re looking for 15 participants to join the pilot program. The pilot will kick off on December 7 and run through January.

As a participant, you’ll need to:

  • Review a weekly email focusing on a leg of our digital journey
  • Take an action, such as filling out a short survey or attending a half-hour virtual meeting
  • Provide feedback at the end of the program about what you liked and what could be improved

Interested? Join an informational session this Friday, November 20 to get more details about the pilot program. Or, email us at providertools@delta.org.

Expand your practice with Medicare Advantage

More than 19 million people nationwide are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage dental plan through Delta Dental (more than 800,000 people have a plan through our enterprise companies*).

And, Medicare Advantage plans continue to grow, providing huge potential for your practice:

  • An estimated 10,000 Baby Boomers per day will retire in the next 13 years, according to Pew Research Center.
  • The number of people over age 65 will increase by 73% between 2010 and 2030, representing one in five Americans (per the U.S. Census Bureau).
  • Research shows that healthy aging includes regular cleanings and checkups.

The Medicare Advantage network is different

Our Medicare Advantage dentist network is separate from our Delta Dental PPOTM and Delta Dental Premier® networks. Advantages of joining include:

  • Your practice will be listed in our Medicare Advantage network directory
  • You’ll retain current Medicare Advantage patients whose fee-for-service plans require they visit a Medicare Advantage network dentist
  • You’ll welcome new Medicare Advantage patients who are looking for an in-network dentist.

Don’t miss this great opportunity to build your practice. Let us know you’re interested by filling out and submitting the form at deltadentalins.com/webforms/provider-Form.

2 new dental plan choices for patients

Uninsured patients in California, Florida, New York, Pennsylvania and Texas now have new Delta Dental PPOSM plan choices. Our Premium and Basic plans are for individuals and families who want to:

  • Replace plans lost to retirement or job changes
  • Stop waiting for an employee benefits package
  • Choose basic or more inclusive benefits with budget-friendly premiums
  • Enroll easily online

Download and save the individual PPO plan flyer to share with patients.

Important: Pennsylvania patients currently enrolled in the individual Delta Dental PPO Basic plan in will be automatically converted to the new Basic plan described in the flyer on September 1, 2017. Renewal dates and premiums for the remainder of their contract year won’t change, and patients can still visit their current dentist.

If you’re not a Delta Dental PPO dentist, consider joining. You’ll get the maximum in-network benefit payment directly from us, gain more insured patients through our online dentist directory and retain patients who will likely save money by visiting a PPO dentist.

 

 

PPO rules!

Are you waiting for a good reason to join Delta Dental PPOSM?

Here are five:

 1. 18 million people in our enterprise regions* have a commercial group (fee-for-service) dental plan. Of those, about 15.6 million have a PPO plan.

2.  Stand out in the crowd. Local PPO network dentist listings display first when PPO enrollees search for dentists from their online account.

3.  Be a hero. Help patients save money. More and more, PPO patients have financial incentives to visit a PPO dentist, such as higher annual maximums or lower coinsurance for basic, and even major services.

4.  Get paid the max. You’ll get the maximum in-network benefit payment from us, and patients will likely pay less out-of-pocket than with a non-PPO dentist.

5.  Create happiness. Patient satisfaction means loyal patients and more referrals. Happy patients, happy practice!

To join PPO, contact your Professional Relations representative today.
