The end of 2020 is right around the corner, and that can mean only one thing: updates to plan portfolios for 2021! In particular, big changes are coming to the Small Business Program (SBP) portfolio.
Introducing the three-level system
The biggest update to the SBP portfolio in 2021 is the new three-level plan structure. Whether Delta Dental PPO™, Delta Dental PPO Plus Premier™ or DeltaCare® USA, all plans will now be classified Deluxe, Advantage or Core.
Core plans offer the baseline benefits and value that Delta Dental plans are known for.
Advantage plans balance the value offered by Core plans with the expanded benefits and coverage of Deluxe plans.
Deluxe plans offer the most coverage and the highest levels of benefits without compromise.
More, more, more
Delta Dental PPO plans are getting more of the benefits and options that brokers’ clients have been asking for. These new features include:
More coverage for popular benefits, like white fillings in front and back teeth
More dual choice and Core/Buy-Up plans for clients looking for more plan options
More voluntary plan choices
More plans for groups with 2–4 employees
And even more!
It’s all about value
When your clients think about Delta Dental, they think of great benefits and amazing value. The changes coming in 2021 are going to make that even clearer. These plans are going to be easier to understand, feature more of the benefits your clients will love and offer coverage for more groups no matter their size.
Stay tuned for more posts with updates on our 2021 SBP portfolio!
Educating families about dental care in creative ways raises prospects for buy-in to a Delta Dental plan. The way to engage children in dental care is to give them opportunities to learn about taking care of the teeth, gums and mouth so their smiles are healthy.
Grin! for Kids is a coloring and activity book with fun, educational projects for children in grades K‑5. It is a free resource that adds value to a Delta Dental plan. The book can be printed out at home for easy access, as parents show children about preventive care in taking advantage of plan benefits.
Each issue of Grin! for Kids, available in English and Spanish, contains new ideas and information that families can share as they maintain regular visits to their dentist under their plan.
Encourage your clients to brighten their smiles — and their days — with Delta Dental’s fun, informative and free e‑magazine: Grin!
Available in English and Spanish, this quarterly publication is full of useful and entertaining content, such as:
The latest news on dental care — including what to do during the coronavirus pandemic
Advice from experts
First looks at innovative technology
Healthy recipes, and more
And because dental health is strongly tied to overall health, Grin! also explores how many chronic health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes and depression, are related to dental care. In fact, Grin! explains how allergies and oral health are related in the recent summer issue.
