Staying healthy includes taking good care of your teeth and getting regular checkups. Lam offers three dental plan options to meet your needs: one covers basic preventive care and two others provide more comprehensive coverage, including orthodontia.
Delta Dental administers all three plans. All the plans offer provider choice. They include a preferred provider network in many areas, which saves you money. At the same time, they allow you to use any licensed dental provider you wish. But if you use Delta Dental PPO or Premier dentists:
- Your out-of-pocket costs will be lower, because these dentists agree to provide services at much lower costs. You’ll pay only your share of these reduced fees.
- You won't be billed for charges that are higher than your plan’s limits.
- Your claims are handled automatically.
You may also decline dental coverage by not enrolling.
