UNM offers two dental plans through Delta Dental of New Mexico to all benefit eligible employees. (Note: Eligible Residents Physicians’ may only participate in the Delta’s Premier plan)
Delta Dental is a nationwide insurance company. You may utilize any dental provider outside of NM that is contracted with Delta Dental under the Premier or PPO preferred plans. When using a provider outside of NM, the provider should contact the NM Delta Dental office to confirm your coverage, and the claims must be submitted by the provider to the NM Delta Dental Office. Contact the Delta Dental office when accessing services outside of NM to insure proper coordination and processing of claims.
Upon enrollment, Delta Dental will mail your Insurance ID cards. Dependents will not receive a card with their names. Everyone covered will use the card with the primary member's name. If you do not receive your ID card, please contact Delta Dental to have one sent to you, or you may log onto Delta Dental's website and print out an ID card. UNM provides Delta Dental with your UNM Banner ID for identification purposes. Please provide your UNM Banner ID number, not your Social Security number, when utilizing services at your dental provider or when speaking to Delta Dental.
