Medicare Preferred Supplement

Delta Dental® Option for Tufts Medicare Preferred Supplement plans     

Members of Tufts Health Plan Medicare Preferred Supplement plans are now eligible to enroll in a new dental coverage option from Delta Dental® of Massachusetts for just $60 a month. The Delta Dental® Option provides excellent dental coverage that:
  • Provides comprehensive benefits with no out-of-pocket costs for covered preventive services such as teeth cleanings and fluoride treatments.
  • Pays 50-80% for restorative services such as tooth extractions, dentures, crowns, and more! 
  • Features an affordable annual deductible of $50 per calendar year. 
  • Access to the limited Delta Dental PPOSM network of dentists across the nation, with many dentists in Massachusetts. Click HERE to see if your dentist is in the Delta Dental PPO network.
You can add dental to any Tufts Health Plan Medicare Preferred Supplement plan for $60 per month.

How it works

  • Confirm your dentist is in the Tufts Health Plan Medicare Preferred dental network, or find a new dentist in the network. Click HERE to search the Delta Dental PPO network.
  • The cost for the Tufts Health Plan Delta Dental® Option is just $60 a month. This cost is in addition to your Tufts Health Plan Medicare Preferred Supplement plan’s monthly premium. 
  • There is a $50 annual deductible. After it is met Delta Dental® pays some or all of the cost for your dental care, up to your $1,000 benefit maximum per year. (The benefit summary below details how different services are covered.)
  • Once the $1,000 is used up, you are responsible for the cost of other care you receive, but you can continue to get the Delta Dental® discounted rates on dental costs.
  • There is NO WAITING PERIOD for any of the services provided.
Please note that the Delta Dental Option utilizes the Delta Dental PPO network, which is a limited network. This network of dentists may be different than in Delta Dental coverage you had previously through other sources, such as an employer. Prior to scheduling an appointment with your dentist, please confirm that your dentist participates in the network to prevent services from being denied.

The Delta Dental® Option is available in addition to your Tufts Health Plan Medicare Preferred medical coverage. It is not automatically included.
