Delta Dental of California’s Small Business Program has announced the following updates:
2019 Rate Pass There will be no increase in rates for all Delta Dental PPO™ and DeltaCare® USA plans. Plus, the two-year rate guarantee will continue for new and renewing groups in 2019. That equates to six years without a rate increase on both PPO and DHMO plans.
New Maximum Option
Effective January 1, 2019, a $2,500 calendar year maximum option will be available to all employer paid plans (groups with 5+ enrolled employees). Group applications with the new maximum will be available soon.
Out-of-State Employees Restrictions on the number of eligible employees allowed to reside out-of-state have been removed from Delta Dental’s PPO plans. Delta Dental now requires a minimum of two California employees enrolled with groups sitused in California. There will, however, continue to be out-of-state limits on DeltaCare USA plans.
New brochures and marketing materials will be available soon.
