Henrico County offers three coverage options through Delta Dental:
Delta Dental PPO – High and Low Options
Both options offer diagnostic and preventive care, basic and major dental care, but differ in their levels of coverage for these services. Both the High and Low Option plans provide savings if you use a provider from the Delta Dental PPO network or the Premier network. Out-of-pocket expenses will vary depending on which network your provider participates in. To enroll in either of these options, you do not have to select a dentist. The link to the provider search is below.
