To Go Carryover Benefit

The PPO plan includes an annual maximum carryover benefit. This valuable benefit gives enrollees the ability to carryover any qualified, unused portion of their annual maximum from one year to the next! The member must have had a dental service that applies to the annual maximum (preventive/diagnostic, basic or major) during the year in order to carry over any unused annual maximum. You get more flexibility in planning and paying for your dental care, as well as the peace of mind knowing you have more benefits—if you need them, when you need them.

Please see the Delta Dental To Go Carryover Benefit flyer for more detailed information.
