One of the most common questions we get is: “How do I get my Delta Dental ID card?” So, let’s get into it.
The answer here is simple - because you don't need a physical insurance ID card to use your dental benefits!
If you purchased an individual or family plan, either directly from us or on the dental exchange, you won’t get a physical ID card in the mail. This is also true for many employer-sponsored plans, although some companies may request printed ID cards for their employees.
If you prefer a hard copy of your Delta Dental insurance card, no sweat. Our online tools make it easy to print a physical copy at home!
Delta Dental cards only show the subscriber’s name, as it is their benefit plan. Every dependent on your plan uses the same subscriber number, so you don’t need a separate ID card for dependents.
When children or family members see a dentist, they will show your card or simply provide your full name and date of birth, your subscriber number, your employer’s name (if applicable) and your mailing address.
No. Your dentist’s office staff only needs to see your Delta Dental cardon your first visit only. After that, you only need to share your card if you make changes to your dental plan.
