Big changes coming for PPO individual plans

Prospective clients have a few more reasons to choose Delta Dental PPO™ plans, thanks to some new improvements that will soon be available.

D&P deductible waiver

Starting with an August 1 effective date, there will be no deductible required for diagnostic and preventive services on both the Basic and Premium plans for new and renewing members. That includes cleanings, exams and x‑rays. What’s even more important is that your clients will have access to the savings immediately when their plan starts and won’t have to pay out of pocket for these services.

“We’re taking down the barriers to getting diagnostic and preventive services that are so important,” said Brandy Petricka, individual channel manager for Delta Dental.

This change is not retroactive but will be available to new members who choose an effective date after August 1. These changes will apply to current members after their new plan year renews.

Increased maximums

The Premium PPO plan now has an increased annual maximum. The Premium maximum is increasing to $2,000 from $1,500, which means they can get more services covered every year.

Improved plan at the same price

Finally, at a time when prices are skyrocketing on almost every item and service, Delta Dental’s rates for the PPO plans are staying the same. Clients won’t have to pay any more for their benefits for the coming year.

The changes make Delta Dental’s plans even more competitive and comprehensive, expanding services while keeping prices the same. This will make it easier for you to sell plans to your individual clients, especially those who seeking preventive services.
