Dental Insurance Through Delta Dental
DPS team members can choose between two optional dental insurance plans offered through Delta Dental:
Exclusive Panel Option (EPO-1B)
With the Delta Dental Exclusive Panel Option (EPO) copay plan,you must see a PPO provider in order to receive benefits.* If you receive treatment from a non-PPO provider, you will be responsible for all fees charged. Payments are based on a copayment schedule. Dentists submit codes to identify the services performed, and those codes determine which copayment applies. You are responsible for your copayment at the time of service. A list of codes along with the corresponding copayments can be found by clicking the link below:

*Most dental offices do not require a card and are able to verify your insurance with your personal information.
+ What’s the difference between an EPO and a PPO dental plan?
- EPO: The EPO plan provides benefits only when you see a PPO (in-network) provider. Treatment and services from a non-PPO provider are not covered.
- PPO: The PPO plus Premier plan allows you to choose from more than 3,200 participating providers across the state. Participating providers file claims directly with Delta Dental and accept Delta Dental’s reimbursement in full. You are responsible only for your deductible and coinsurance (based on your plan), as well as any charges for non-covered services. You may see any dentist; however, your out-of-pocket expenses will be less if you see a Delta Dental network dentist. Unlike the EPO, the PPO has a maximum annual benefits of $1,500.
