DeltaCare® USA is Delta Dental's national Dental Health Maintenance Organization (DHMO). Enrolled patients select from a panel of primary care dentists. These dentists manage their patients' comprehensive dental needs, including referrals to specialists, which earns each dentist a monthly capitation amount.
This product provides another option for those seeking group dental coverage with lower costs, an emphasis on preventive care and access to a pre-selected network of dentists evaluated based on experience, range of services, location, accessibility and their ability to accommodate new patients. Enrolled patients enjoy minimal or no co-payments for preventive care -- and claims are filed directly by in-network dentists.
