Colby is pleased to announce that effective January 1, 2019, all benefit eligible employees will have the option to enroll in dental benefits for themselves and their dependents.
Colby has collarborated with Northeast Delta Dental to offer employees important dental benefits including preventive, basic, and major services as well as child and adult orthodontia benefits.
As a Northeast Delta Dental member, you have access to the largest network of participating dentists both locally and throughout the United States. You also have the freedom to receive care from any licensed provider, regardless if they are in-network or out-of-network. Note that you will pay less when you use a dentist who participates in the Northeast Delta Dental PPO and Premier Networks, as providers have agreed to provide services to plan members at special discounted rates.
Your Dental Networks are Delta Dental PPO and Delta Dental Premier
Delta Dental PPO is one of Northeast Delta Dental’s contracted national network based programs providing deeper discounts that result in greater savings to you.
Delta Dental Premier is Northeast Delta Dental’s national network based products offering pre-negotiated fees. Participating Dentists do not charge patients above the pre-negotiated fees, accepting them under these terms as payment in full.
