Emergencies, by definition, happen at the most inconvenient times, so it’s important to know how your health benefits will cover the emergency. Starting January 1, 2022, Delta Dental of Colorado members will have access to Virtual Visits delivered by TeleDentistry.com for dental emergencies. Plus, this new coverage has no additional cost to Delta Dental of Colorado members.*
Delta Dental Virtual Visits do not replace your regular dentist or dental home. With TeleDentistry.com, members will have access 24/7 to a dentist, 365 days a week. Members can access this service wherever they are with the use of a smartphone, tablet, or computer with audio/visual capabilities.
TeleDentistry.com provides Delta Dental of Colorado members with the reassurance of knowing that they have coverage beyond standard dental office hours when their dentist may not be available or when they’re traveling. It creates an additional access point for our members to get the care they need, when they need it. Quickly and easily.
Delta Dental Virtual Visits may eliminate the need for many emergency room visits. The TeleDentistry.com dentist will provide an initial consultation and can write prescriptions when appropriate. If additional dental care is needed, TeleDentistry.com will refer you to a Delta Dental network dentist for definitive diagnosis and treatment. Your dentist will receive notes on your consultation with TeleDentistry.com for further treatment. It’s important to note that a teledentistry visit is counted as an oral exam under most plans and could be subject to frequency limits.
We all know that dental emergencies can happen. With Delta Dental of Colorado coverage, you and your family can rest assured that you have protection for those dental emergencies.
