I found the dentists in this program to be of poor quality.  After several years and several dentists, I dropped the insurance.  I would up having to pay a lot of money to fix problems that these dentists didn't take care of.

In Response to Re: Is AARP Dental Insurance from Delta Dental a Rip-off? : I recently signed up with a company I thought with the emblems and all was indeed bc/bs dental-PPO which my dentist takes.  Cost was reasonable enough.    Come to find out...this was instead  Florida Combined Life which has a tiny microscopic  message underneath their name on the paperwork  that they are "an independent licensee of bc/bs Assoc.   "I  complained and canceled without much of an fanfare from them as they know how misleading that is.   So gotta  be careful....and even then....you can get duped.  I was under Humana's HMO dental plan and it wasn't any good either and you had to go to dentists on the list and some are nightmares.   So---I don't know what I'm going to do now.     I spend more on dental than I do on medical.

Is AARP Dental Insurance from Delta Dental a Rip-off?

Message 54 of 54 (23,827 Views)
We've had AARP dental insurance for 17 months. We pay ~$115/month for dual coverage. Items that should be covered according to our contract are not. One of my crowns came out with a post attached. My dentist was able to rfe-install the crown using a longer post. He charged $300 for the post. Delta said they would reimburse $170 for such a procedure. However, that procedure is not covered. My dentist was able to save the crown. He only charged for the post. according to my contract that should be covered. I wonder what else is convieniently not covered? Frankly, I could have dropped the insurance and paid cash on the spot and i would have come out ahead. Has anyone else had such an experience?
