The Sandia dental care program (DCP) is provided by Delta Dental of New Mexico and is available to all retired employees and their eligible dependents. Note that this benefit is not available to surviving spouses.
The DCP is a continuation of the same dental plan coverage that’s available to you as a Sandia employee.
Delta Dental handles questions about your coverage, claims status, and network providers.
Via Benefits handles eligibility, enrollment, and premium payments.
With the DCP, you can seek care through three provider network options:
Delta Dental PPO™
Delta Dental Premier®
Lowest out-of-pocket costs for care
Higher in-network out-of-pocket costs for care
Highest out-of-pocket costs
Plus, you may be charged the full cost for your care, be asked to pay when you receive care, and then submit a claim for reimbursement
Coverage levels and benefits are the same when you seek care from PPO and Premier in-network dentists. However, the network discount on the PPO plan can really save you money in your out-of-pocket costs.
