A pre-determination is a plan of treatment, completed by your dentist, for services that will be provided at a future date. You and your dentist will receive a reply as to whether the treatment plan is covered under your group’s benefits. You will also receive an estimated dollar amount for the planned procedure. A pre-determination is recommended when dental services are expected to cost $250 or more. A pre-determination is valid for 90 days and is subject to eligibility, benefit maximums, group and dentist status at the time services are provided.
We do not require a pre-approval for services received, but we recommend it for any non-emergency treatment plan of $250 or more. Please discuss this option with your dentist.
Cosmetic services are not covered under Delta Dental’s group dental plans. Please log in to view your Member Handbook/Evidence of Coverage (EOC) to see if orthodontics are covered under your plan. You may also contact our Benefit Services Department at 800-237-6060 to review your group’s dental benefits.

You can check your claims history by logging into our member portal or by calling our Benefit Services Department at 800-237-6060. Because of the large volume of claims received each day, please allow 10 - 14 business days for processing before contacting Benefit Services to confirm receipt of your claim.
If you receive treatment from a participating dentist, they will file all claim information for you. However, you are responsible for submitting claim information if you visit a non-participating dentist. All claims must be submitted within twelve (12) months of the date services are completed. If the claim is for Orthodontic services, the claim should be filed at the time of the banding. New enrollees who are already in Orthodontic treatment when this coverage becomes effective or after a benefit waiting period is met, should file a claim upon enrollment or once the benefit waiting period has been satisfied. If you visit an out-of-network dentist and need a claim form, call us at 800-237-6060.
Claims can be mailed or faxed to:

Yes, if you are not satisfied with our response you may request that your dental office appeal the decision. Two appeals are allowed. The first appeal must be received within 180 days of the date of the check or the original claim denial. The dental office has 60 days from the date of the first appeal denial letter to file the second appeal.
Visiting a Delta Dental participating dentist will provide you with higher cost savings, as dentists who participate with us have agreed to accept our allowances as payment for the services provided under your plan. Participating dentists will also file all claims for you, meaning you will only be responsible for any coinsurance and/or deductible at the time of your visit.
If you choose to visit a non-participating dentist, you may be responsible for all payments and charges to the dentist at the time of treatment, and you may be balanced-billed for the difference in the cost of services provided. You may also be responsible for submitting the claim form to Delta Dental of Virginia.
