Dental Insurance

The State of Texas Dental Choice Plan – The State's indemnity plan is administered by Delta Dental. The dental choice plan does not restrict your choice of dentists, but it does limit payment based on your choice of dentist. Using an in-network dentist will result in a higher percentage of costs paid. More information about the Dental Choice Plan is available here.

The Dental Maintenance Plan – The Delta DHMO plan is a dental maintenance plan that provides coverage to you and your covered dependents through a network of participating dentists. You MUST select a primary care dentist from within the network and obtain services from that dentist in order to be covered for benefits. You may change primary care dentists as often as you like. There is no deductible and your out-of-pocket expense is based upon the schedule of benefits and the services you receive. The participating dentist will file claims for you. A fee schedule and list of providers are available on the Delta Dental DHMO website. You are covered for all services, including major dental procedures, as of the effective date of the plan. Generally, the co-payments represent about a 50% to 90% discount in normal fees. You receive a 30% discount for treatment by a specialist.
