Delta Dental will continue to be the carrier and coverage will remain unchanged for 2012. As with the state’s health care plans, the dental plan provides 100% diagnostic and preventive coverage, provided an in-network dentist is used.
Also covered 100% is emergency palliative treatment (used to temporarily relieve pain), x-rays and sealants (to prevent decay of pits and fissures of permanent back teeth). There are limits to the coverage of sealants, however, so please check with Delta Dental before agreeing to the treatment.
The plan covers 80% of the cost for oral surgery, fillings, the repair of diseased, damaged or injured teeth, relines and repairs to bridges and dentures and single crowns, provided an in-network dentist is used.
Dental rates are displayed on the rates table on the 2012 plan rates page.
