- •Most insurance companies offer a variety of benefit plans with different features. You may have co-workers or friends who are also covered by Delta Dental, but their coverage may differ from yours.
- •Make sure Blacksburg Smiles and the doctors "participate" in the network for your dental plan. That will allow us to submit your claim. If not, you may be responsible for paying your bill directly and submitting your claim yourself to the carrier.
- •If you are entitled to benefits from more than one group dental plan, the amounts paid by the combined plans will not exceed 100 percent of your dental expenses. Benefits for dependents vary from plan to plan. Pay particular attention to special clauses and to language about dependents.
- •Dental benefits are calculated within a "benefit period", which is typically for one year but not always a calendar year. Check your benefits information so that you know when you might be approaching your deductible payments or plan maximums.
