Access thousands of patients with NY Select

Gain access to over 200,000 NY members with 100% benefits for covered services when you enroll as an NY Select dentist! When you participate in the NY Select network (formerly known as NYPPO), you can help provide your fellow New Yorkers with dependable, quality dental care.

This network is specific to New York state and is the only in-network option for members of two large union health plan/funds:

  • DC37 is the largest public employee union in New York City, with 150,000 members serviced by the District Council 37 Health & Security Plan. DC37 members help make New York run by working in over 1,000 titles — everything from accountants to zookeepers.
  • 32BJ is a branch of Service Employees International Union (SEIU) that is headquartered in New York City. The Building Service 32BJ Health Fund services over 75,000 of New York’s property service workers.

DC 37 and 32BJ’s NY members are benefited 100% for covered services with NY Select participating dentists.

Delta Dental ensures that members are able to find your office by providing special dentist directories especially for DC37 and 32BJ patients.

Everything you’ll need for administration, including how to register for direct deposit, view treatment history and obtain claim status, is available in your Provider Tools account. 

Simply log in or register to access these handy tools:

  • Reference Library: Find your Dentist Handbook and other information.
  • My Patients: Obtain eligibility and benefits for current and new patients.
  • Submit Claims: Transmit free, real-time claims and attachments.
  • My Account: Update your directory profile to ensure patients can find you.

2 new dental plan choices for patients

Uninsured patients in California, Florida, New York, Pennsylvania and Texas now have new Delta Dental PPO™ 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.

New individual and group plans gain momentum

We’re innovating to bring more patients to you! New individual, group and exchange plans combine the services enrollees want most: in-network advantages and affordability.

New for New York:  We’ve developed a PPO benefits plan to serve local municipalities, schools and similar organizations, as well as other group plan purchasers in New York. With about 150,000 enrollees so far, we may invite additional dentists to join. This plan network is separate from Delta Dental PPOSM and Delta Dental Premier® networks. Participation offers competitive compensation, and administration is simple with Provider Tools. New York dentists -- watch your mail for more information.

Plans in 16 public exchanges for 2017: Our group of Delta Dental companies* participates in 16 state and federal public exchanges. Last year, nearly 250,000 enrollees chose a DeltaCare® USA plan (closed network) or a Delta Dental PPO plan (open network). Our presence in public exchanges helps individuals and small business owners obtain affordable coverage. Premiums are as low as possible while keeping the benefits enrollees want. Read more about our plans and state/federal exchanges.

Individual PPO plan launched in Pennsylvania: The Delta Dental Individual & FamilySM Delta Dental PPOSM Basic Plan for Pennsylvania residents covers diagnostic and preventive services only. There is a $50 annual deductible per person, no annual maximum and no waiting periods. Premiums start at about $16/month, and there is a $10 one-time enrollment fee. Your interested patients can get more information and buy the plan online.
