Dental Insurance [download informational flyer]

As a member of NYCON, you will have access to our Delta Dental Programs. For a minimal fee, NYCON can assist you in offering and managing a dental insurance plan(s) for your nonprofit. Through plan administration, we offer the convenience of one bill and one single point of contact for all of your insurance questions.

Choose from one of the following options:

DeltaPPO Option (PPO) is a discounted fee-for-service, managed-cost dental plan that allows you the freedom to choose any dentist for treatment, (but you will receive the greatest benefit from a dentist participating in Delta’s preferred provider network.) The Delta Premier program has the nation´s largest dental network, with more than three out of every four of the country´s dentists participating. Delta Premier provides a level of enrollee protection that is unmatched.

DeltaCare USA Option (HMO) Delta Care USA is Delta Dental’s national Dental Health Maintenance Organization. Subscribers select from a panel of primary care dentists. These dentists manage subscriber’s comprehensive dental needs including referrals to specialists, which earns each dentist a monthly capitation amount. Delta Care USA is the choice for groups seeking lower costs, an emphasis on prevention and access to a pre-selected network of dentists.

What nonprofits are eligible to enroll in these plans?
Staff, Board Members or Volunteers are eligible to enroll effective the first of any month after the signing of a group contract with the New York Council of Nonprofits, Inc. NYCON will provide identification cards for this plan. Subscribers may also use their social security number and the group number indicated as proof of their enrollment and benefits.
