Still in Network with Delta Dental

Note for our Delta Dental Patients

August 1st, 2022

Delta Dental Update:

Contrary to the letter that Delta sent our patients we are still in-network with Delta Dental.  

We reached out to Delta to ask for an increase in our set fee schedule, as our costs to provide care have increased significantly since the covid pandemic.  Delta responded by moving us to their premier dentist fee schedule. 

Unlike most dental insurance companies that can adjust their fees as circumstances warrant, Delta changes to upgraded schedules. During the time that they were clicking a different check box on my provider account,  we were listed as an out of network provider.  This caused Delta Dental’s computer generated system to send out hundreds of letters to our patients.  We did not process any claims in this window so no patients should be affected. 

Our Delta PPO patients still have in-network benefits.  What should have been a seamless transition has been complicated and confusing for all. We are re-verifying every Delta account prior to each patient visit to be sure there are no more unexpected events.   

A bit of information: Unlike dental insurance companies, Delta Dental is a non-profit organization that does not have the same set of rules and regulations as a traditional insurance carrier.  This level of chaos and lower reimbursements is why most dentists in this area are no longer in-network.  We apologize for the confusion and are doing everything we can to continue to provide network benefits for our Delta Dental patients.

Dental Insurance – Frequently Asked Questions

For our patients who are fortunate enough to have dental benefits, we offer the following information to help understand dental insurance coverage.

Do you participate with my plan?

Participation means that we have agreed to the fee schedule as provided by your carrier.  This means that you will  never pay more than the lowest possible fees for your plan. Your employer will decide how much of these plan fees are your responsibility and how much will be paid by the insurance company.

We have contracts with the following insurance carriers:

  • Aetna PPO
  • Cigna PPO
  • Guardian PPO
  • MetLife PPO
  • United Healthcare PPO
  • Delta Premier Plan
  • United Concordia
  • Dominion Dental PPO
  • Assurant Employee Benefits
  • Principal PPO
  • Humana PPO dental network

How much does my plan cover?

Dental Insurance sales people will tell you that their plan will cover 80-100% of your dental fees. What they don’t share is the fine print. In reality most dental benefits plan cover between 40 -60% of dental service fees.  Dental insurance was never designed to pay for everything. Unlike health insurance it has a contract maximum, deductibles and percentages.  These amounts change every time an employer renews the plan.

What does PPO (Preferred Provider Organization) mean?

A practice is considered “in-network” when the dentist has a agreed to accept the fees set by the insurance carrier. While in many practices this means a substantial savings, at rainbow valley dental we offer low fees everyday. We are in network with many PPO plans. We can easily verify if you benefit plan is in network with out office.


Why is made in the USA important in dentistry?

Many insurance networks have made special pricing deals with large laboratories to provide dental appliances (such as crowns, bridges, dentures, implants, partials, night guards etc.) at significantly lower costs to the participating practices.  These labs routinely outsource these medical devices to overseas labs that are not under the guidelines of the FDA. We will never outsource our laboratory work.

What are DMO’s (Dental Maintenance Organization)?

Much like an HMO in medical care a patient covered by a DMO contract will only receive benefits at the DMO dentist that has been selected for them.  The DMO practice is paid a monthly stipend for their DMO patients whether they seek treatment or not. Many DMO patients who are unhappy with their DMO dentist seek dentistry outside of the network and choose a non-DMO plan when they are able.

Will you bill my insurance directly?

Rainbow Valley Dental submits claims to most major insurance carriers electronically each day.  We ask that insurance patients pay a deposit for their care at the time of service and maintain a form of payment on file to cover the balance when the insurance benefits are received.

Can I spread out my payments?

Of course, we offer CareCredit patient financing to provide interest free option for spreading out dental treatment fees.  Simple application is required and this re-usable line of credit can be used for an entire family.

My insurance covers very little- why is that?

Dental benefits are what you pay for.  The primary goal of a dental Insurance carrier is profit for their shareholders. So they make sure their contracts are written in such a way that employers and individuals pay more for plans that they pay out in benefits.

My explanation of benefits is very confusing.

We will help you in any way to understand your benefits and get the maximum benefits you are entitled too.

Is there an individual dental insurance plan that you recommend?

We offer an in office plan that has been beneficial to many patients and their families.

The story of this old farmhouse

Build in 1860 this farmhouse has been here for quite some time. Over the years it has been renovated and added too. Unfortunately time was not always kind to this grand old home.

In 2011 Dr. Stephanie McGann, a dentist purchased this farmhouse with the idea of saving a structure that was on the brink of collapse.  The original stone chimney was sinking and pulling the side of the house down with it.

Circa 2009

Dr. McGann has spent years developing a plan that would keep most major elements of the old farmhouse while using the space for a small family-friendly dental practice.

We’re a full-service, family-friendly dental practice.
