How to Cancel Your Delta Dental Insurance Plan In 3 Steps
As the nation's leading supplier of dental insurance, Delta Dental provides healthy smiles for some 80 million Americans with the largest network of dentists on the planet.
As good as they are at ensuring the dental needs of you and your family, there may be other reasons afoot that are prompting you to cancel their services. In this post, we will address the issue of canceling your Delta Dental Plan both by yourself, and the fast and easy way with the cancel services tools available from DoNotPay.
Delta Dental at a Glance
In 1954, employers and dentists on the west coast began to toy with the idea of providing an employer-backed dental coverage solution to address the dental needs of workers and their families in California, Washington, and Oregon. This effort was led by Delta Dental of Washington and the first dental coverage by employers was born.
In 2022, Delta Dental consists of some 39 independent companies that form the Delta Dental Network in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.
Being considered as an industry leader, Delta Dental in its 68 years of providing service, can only muster a sad 1.2 out of 5-stars for a review score and over $64K in losses across 163 unsettled complaints.
Their most common complaints:
- Unpaid claims for basic dental services
- Unpaid claims for specialty dental service (that had been authorized by Delta Dental)
- Inconsistent coverages across states
- High-priced premiums for little to no coverage
- Dentists refusing to honor Delta Dental
If you want to cancel, it would seem that Delta Dental gives very little to smile about, and does very little to correct the issues!
Getting Out from Under Delta Dental
So, for whatever reason, you have decided that Delta Dental is just not a good fit for you and your family. You may have issues with getting a claim approved or a situation where the amount of your out-of-pocket expenses was substantially higher than it ought to be.
Whatever the reason, you and Delta Dental will be parting ways.
You may need to consult the fine print of your Delta Dental Plan Agreement concerning:
- Opt-out policy
- If you cancel your plan today, and decide to rejoin tomorrow you will be forced into another waiting period regardless of how long you have been with Delta Dental
- Some plans are paid by the employer annually, and you may not be entitled to any monthly premium refund
Members have also reported unethical practices with any outstanding claims that hadn't been paid as of the canceling of their plan. It seems that as soon as you cancel, you cancel any outstanding claims as well.
If you feel that you have been victimized by canceling your Delta Dental Plan, you are encouraged to fill out and file a grievance with the company. Most members have stated that the grievance falls on deaf ears but if you remain persistent you may get a ruling in your favor.
