The DPPO Plan

The PPO Plan offers the flexibility to visit any dentist, with lower out-of-pocket costs to you when you visit a network dentist. When you use out-of-network providers, your cost is based on the Usual, Customary and Reasonable (UCR) charge, instead of a discounted fee. You are responsible for any amounts that exceed the UCR, in addition to the deductible and coinsurance.
