02/21/14 – Delta Dental of Missouri Launches Ecommerce Website for Those Looking to Purchase an Individual/Family Dental Plan

Delta Dental of Missouri, the state’s leading dental benefits provider, today announced the launch of its easy-to-use eCommerce site, individual.deltadentalmo.com. Individuals looking to purchase dental coverage for themselves and family members can now do so through this new, all-inclusive online resource. The new site allows shoppers to compare plan options, obtain a quote, access the provider network, view a wealth of oral health information and purchase dental coverage online.

Based on the proven associations between good oral health and good overall health, Delta Dental of Missouri has developed several benefit plans that focus on prevention and comprehensive care to promote optimal oral health among Missourians. Each affordable plan is designed to meet the changing dental benefit needs of today’s individuals and families. Delta Dental of Missouri makes it easy to enroll and offers convenient payment options.

Those who purchase a Delta Dental Individual and Family plan can choose any dentist and have coverage, but individuals will pay the lowest out-of-pocket costs when they receive services from a dentist in the Delta Dental PPOSM Network. All Delta Dental plans are always backed by unmatched service and customer care. On the new site, members can find a dentist, print an ID card, manage their own accounts, make profile changes and review claims. Personal assistance is also available at 866-991-7345.

“In the midst of all the change associated with the Affordable Care Act and its inclusion of pediatric dental coverage as one of the 10 Essential Health Benefits, Delta Dental of Missouri remains a consistent, reliable resource for consumers of dental benefits,” commented David Haynes, president and CEO of Delta Dental of Missouri. “We understand that every dollar spent on preventive care saves money on restorative and major care down the road. Access to affordable coverage is closely tied to the probability that an individual will visit the dentist regularly. These are essential factors in protecting the oral health and overall health of Missourians and their families, and this drives our business and social mission.”

To learn more, visit individual.deltadentalmo.com, where Market-certified plans that meet Affordable Care Act requirements are available, along with a traditional, non-certified option. Delta Dental of Missouri  also offers plans on the Federally-Facilitated Health Insurance Marketplace located at healthcare.gov.
