Pair dental and vision coverage with DeltaVision®

Clients love the simplicity that comes from paired plans. Easy-to-manage invoicing and a simpler benefits search make for a more enjoyable shopping and buying experience. DeltaVision® will help you bring vision and dental coverage to your small business clients in a single package.

What is DeltaVision?

DeltaVision is a vision plan offered to SBP clients in partnership with VSP. Whether a small business group has as few as two members or as many as 99, it can add vision coverage with DeltaVision. Please note: DeltaVision plans must be purchased with one of Delta Dental’s SBP dental plans and can’t be purchased separately.

Why is DeltaVision the right choice for my clients?

DeltaVision offers more than just basic vision coverage. In addition to regular check-ups and coverage for frames and lenses, DeltaVision plans feature:

  • An industry-leading network. DeltaVision plans feature VSP’s nationwide network with access to tens of thousands of doctors.
  • Flexible prices. DeltaVision is available at different price points, just like SBP dental plans, so it’s easy to find the right fit for your clients’ budgets.
  • Enhanced savings. Through VSP, DeltaVision members will enjoy extra savings on glasses and sunglasses, routine retinal screenings and laser vision correction procedures.
  • Expanded benefits. Similar to the optional SmileWay® Wellness Benefits available under dental plans, DeltaVision members with diabetes are eligible for the Diabetic Eyecare Plus Program, which includes additional exams and services for diabetic eye disease, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration.
  • Easy-to-understand choices. The DeltaVision Easy Options plan lets members choose the benefits that suit their needs from a frame allowance or a contact lens allowance. (Easy Options is currently available in Utah and is pending regulation in other states.)

Where is DeltaVision available?

For effective dates in 2022, DeltaVision plans are currently available in AL, CA, DC, DE, FL, GA, LA, MT, NV, PA, UT and WV. DeltaVision plans are available to brokers working with Allied Administrators.

2021 Small Business Program: Networks made simpler

A new video is now available to help explain the Delta Dental PPO™ and Delta Dental Premier® networks. Designed especially for Small Business Program (SBP) clients, this video highlights the differences and similarities between these networks.

Two networks, one satisfying experience

This video will help SBP clients understand the following points about our networks:

  • Members with a Delta Dental PPO plan can see any licensed dentist.
  • Between the PPO and Premier networks, Delta Dental has the nation’s largest dental network1 — finding in-network dentists is easy.
  • Members with Delta Dental PPO plans will usually save the most when they visit a PPO dentist. For members who want to visit a Premier dentist, a Delta Dental PPO Plus Premier™ plan will help increase their savings.

2021 Small Business Program changes: Overview

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.
