Delta Dental Change Correction Notice

We recently discovered that a system error generated a letter to some of our Mid-Market and BusinessEDGE Group members stating that January 1, 2019, Delta Dental of Virginia will no longer administer the pediatric oral service and that Optima Health would administer this service for the rest of their plan year. In actuality, this only applies to Small Groups who renew between February and December 2018.
