The initial payment made by DDAR for comprehensive treatment cannot be more than one-third (1/3) of the total fee for treatment. Subsequent payment(s) will be issued on a regular basis for continuing, active orthodontic treatment. Payment(s) will begin the month after the beginning of treatment. Payments are subject to the participants’ co-payment percentage and lifetime maximum. Orthodontia is considered a pre-existing condition if treatment begins prior to the date he/she became eligible under this plan.

The benefit allowance for services of an out-of-network dentist will be reduced by 10% for eligible services as determined by Delta Dental after applying the applicable deductibles, co-payments and maximums. This means your out-of-pocket expense may be greater if you choose an out-of-network dentist.

(*) DDAR covers additional routine cleanings or periodontal maintenance procedures (up to four per year) for covered members with diabetes, heart disease, who are pregnant or have a history of periodontal disease. The additional benefits may not be combined by those with more than one of the above conditions.
