Dental Savings Program
The Dental Savings Program is an exclusive plan for students enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan. The program is operated by Connection Dental Network to provide students access to general and specialty dental care from a select network of local dentists. The network of providers has met strict credentialing and quality assurance requirements. The network of participating dental providers have agreed to accept negotiated prices for the services they provide. Students will be responsible for paying for services they receive at the time of the visit. Students will generally save from 20% to 50% of charges for a wide range of dental services - from routine cleanings to root canals. Because the Dental Savings Program is not insurance, there are no claim forms, annual maximums, benefit limitations and conditions or other plan provisions. Students can log onto the website, www.ppousa.com to locate participating dental providers. Nationwide Life Insurance Company does not underwrite this plan.
Students can call the PPO USA Provider Referral line at 877-277-6872 to obtain a fee schedule on an individual basis. You need to have the Provider information (name, address with zip code) and the dental procedure code(s) (DPT) for the service(s) in order to get the fee information. Fee schedules are assigned by zip code, so they are consistent within an area.
