Delta Dental of Illinois has dental plans that meet the guidelines of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). These plans are NOT available online.
about these plans or find out how you can enroll
in our ACA compliant individual plans.
Members who choose Delta Dental PPO – Gold, Silver or Bronze plans*
have the flexibility to choose any dentist with Delta Dental’s individual
dental plans – Delta Dental PPO℠, Delta Dental Premier® or non-network,
but your out-of-pocket costs will vary. Delta Dental’s individual plans
reimbursement for dental procedures is based on Delta Dental PPO fees.
You will save the most money by visiting a Delta Dental PPO℠ dentist.
Delta Dental Premier and non-network dentists can bill for charges above the allowed Delta Dental
PPO amount. This means that even if a procedure is covered at 100%, you may have out of pocket
costs if you use a Delta Dental Premier or non-network dentists because they can bill for charges
above the allowed Delta Dental PPO amount. However, Delta Dental Premier dentists cannot bill for
charges above the allowed Delta Dental Premier amount, which means you may save money with a
Delta Dental Premier dentist compared to a non-network dentist. See how.
* Not applicable to members who choose Delta Dental PPO-Gold with Individual Kids Preferred,
Delta Dental PPO-Silver with Individual Kids Preferred or Individual Kids Preferred.
Delta Dental of Illinois’ Individual Kids Preferred plan meets all the guidelines of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA)
Pediatric Dental Essential Health Benefit (EHB). The Delta Dental PPO Individual Kids Preferred plan uses an Exclusive Provider Feature.
With an Exclusive Provider Feature, benefits are paid only when a member sees a Delta Dental PPO dentist.
There are no benefits when a member sees a dentist outside of the Delta Dental PPO network.
However, with the Gold and Silver Plan with the Individual Preferred plan, members under age 19 can use the benefits of both plans
but can only receive benefits from the Individual Kids Preferred plan with Delta Dental PPO dentists.
