There are no deductibles to meet, no claims to file, no waiting periods for covered members, no annual dollar maximum and preexisting conditions are covered.

Preferred Provider Organization (PPO): Delta Dental of Tennessee

The PPO offers flexibility in that members may choose any dentist; however, members receive maximum benefits when visiting a participating network provider. No referrals are required and you or your dentist will file claims for services rendered. Employees who join the plan after the January 1, 2011 will have a 12 month waiting period for major dental and orthodontic services. The plan is administered by Delta Dental of Tennessee. Visit the website at or call the Customer Service hotline at 800-223-3104.

Dependents 19 up to age 26 can be covered on your Assurant or Delta Dental plan. Proof of relationship (i.e., birth certificate and/or other pertinent documentation) is required for 19 up to age 26 dependents and for all new dependents not covered on the employee’s medical plan.
