Explanation of Benefits

An Explanation of Benefits (EOB) is a document that Delta Dental may send you after you receive dental treatment. This document will explain what procedures were covered under your benefits plan, as well as any procedures that might not have been covered, and why they were not covered.

An EOB will provide you with the information you need, including:

  • Dental services performed (procedure description)
  • Dentist fees
  • Delta Dental’s payment
  • Your required payment
  • Coordination of benefits information, if applicable
  • Annual maximums used in the current benefit year

EOBs are mailed directly to you, except when you do not owe a balance. If you do not owe a balance on the cost of your dental procedure, you can access a copy of your EOB online using the Consumer Toolkit.

If you have questions about an EOB, please contact us at (877) 395-9420.
