The County offers two dental plans to its employees:
With this plan you may choose a Delta Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) dentist, a Delta Premier dentist, or a non-network dentist that is a member of the California Dental Association. When you visit a Delta Dental dentist, you’ll pay a share of the contracted fee for most services. If you visit a non-network dentist, the plan pays its share of “allowable charges” for services provided and you are responsible for any balance.
Your costs are usually lower when you choose a Delta PPO dentist. Some providers may require you to complete a claim form, although most dentists will file the claim electronically for you. Contact Delta Dental at 888-335-8227 or at www.deltadentalins.com to find a provider.
Liberty Dental is a Dental Health Maintenance Organization (DHMO). Similar to a medical HMO plan, you must live in the plan’s service area and receive care from participating dental providers. Copayments apply for specific services; however, there are usually no annual limits and no claim forms. Contact Liberty Dental at 888-359-1088 or at www.client.libertydentalplan/scc to find a provider.
