Delta Dental of Illinois announces smart new plans for small businesses

Posted on November 9, 2020 in Dental benefit information

Delta Dental of Illinois is launching a new suite of dental benefit solutions for businesses with two to 150 employees. The new plans — Base, Ascent and Pinnacle — include features and options not commonly available to smaller businesses.

With the launch of these plans, Delta Dental of Illinois is eliminating waiting periods for all small groups.

New features for the small group dental plans include more options for annual maximums, occlusal (night) guard coverage, adult orthodontics and additional ortho lifetime maximums. Small businesses can add a dental HMO, Affordable Care Act-certified or low-plan option to their dental plan. They can also choose to offer employees vision coverage through DeltaVision®.*

The new plans aim to provide the most comprehensive and flexible coverage for small businesses.

Employees rank dental benefits as one of the most important benefits, second only to medical coverage.1 Dental benefits not only help attract and retain employees but can also increase productivity and well-being. People with dental coverage are more likely to visit the dentist at least once a year compared to those without coverage. The preventive care they receive at  routine checkups help them avoid more comprehensive, time-consuming and costly treatments.
