UT Benefits and Delta Dental Insurance Company provide three plan options for employees and their families, two PPO Plans and one dental HMO plan.
Dental PPO Plans
UT Benefits offers two dental PPO plans for you to choose from based on the level of benefits your family needs. Both dental PPO plans allow you the freedom to choose from any licensed dentist although you will maximize your benefits when you use a Delta Dental DPO or Delta Premier network provider.
- UT SELECT Dental Plan (Standard Dental PPO Plan) - good for standard dental insurance needs
- UT SELECT Dental Plus Plan (Enhanced Dental PPO Plan) - greater benefits than the standard UT SELECT Dental Plan
