Dental Insurance

Does AARP provide a decent Dental Plan?  DELTA Dental patient costs seem like the policy is worthless...

Got my elderly mom enrolled last summer in advance of some major dental work. It saved her thousands of dollars. The work still cost her thousands, but the AARP/Delta insurance did indeed save her a lot. $34/month isn't too bad for that.

Hi @JamesF227210 ! The only dental insurance that is currently offered is Delta Dental.

Thanks but... Few if any of the options you mentioned were discussed when I CALLED Delta Dental...

I was given the option of a moderate payment. The WAITING time for Implants and other services was NOT clearly presented.

The maximum they would pay was about $1200 dollars. Pretty useless when a bridge is about $5000.00...

My feeling it that Delta Dental is kind of a SCAM... When discussing the plans with them they did NOT put forward the waiting time or the LOW benifit amount...

 I agree! I did the math. The premium they quote ($88 a month), plus the 90 bucks deductible is MORE than the maximum annual benefits they would pay. How is this a "benefit"? Where is the value to anyone other than Delta? And why does AARP endorse such a losing proposition?
