Eligible employees have two supplemental dental plans available to them through Delta Dental; however, enrollment is allowed in one of them. Both plans offer comprehensive dental coverage, providing employees and their families the opportunity to utilize a broad network and choose a dental benefit that meet their needs.
Delta Dental plan options:
- PPO – Select
- PPO Plus Premier – Select Plus
The primary differences between the two plans are the provider networks, premium cost, annual maximums and whether orthodontia is covered (Select Plus Plan only). Both plans provide coverage for major services, such as crowns and implants, but do not cover preventive or basic services, such as cleanings and fillings. If coverage for preventive and/or basic services is needed, consider enrolling in Uniform Dental.
For more information and details go to the Plan Brochure and Dental Comparison Chart located in the Forms & Resources section below.
Employees may see the dentist of your choice but will have lower out-of-pocket costs if they see in-network dentists. Not sure if a dentist is a Delta Dental participating provider? Call Delta Dental at 800-236-3712, visit Delta Dental at deltadentalwi.com/state-of-wi, or contact your dentist directly.
Eligibility for this plan is:
- Eligible for State Group Health Insurance, and
- Are not receiving a Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) annuity.
For detailed information regarding who can be covered in thisplan, see the Dependent Eligibility Grid under Forms & Resources.
Employees have 30 days from their date of employment or their newly benefits-eligible job to enroll their self and eligible family members in a supplemental dental plan through Delta Dental. Coverage will begin on the first of the month on or following the employee’s eligibility date.
If employees do not enroll in a supplemental dental plan or did not include dependents on their plan during their initial 30-day enrollment period, they may enroll during the Annual Benefits Enrollment period or if they have a qualifying life event. See Life Events for more information.
Once enrolled in a supplemental dental plan, employees must remain enrolled for the calendar year.
