Dental coverage is an essential health benefit for children. Preventive care services* for eligible dependents includes services like:
*Please see your DeltaCare® USA Plan Schedule of Benefits for the covered benefits and cost sharing information for pediatric dental benefits
included with your plan. Dental schedules are also available on Sharp Connect.
Before you begin accessing care, it’s important to verify your coverage. If you are enrolled in an individual and family plan through Sharp Health Plan or through Covered California™, or through certain employer groups, then your
plan will include pediatric dental benefits. To verify your coverage, please review your Member Handbook.
Employers may offer dental benefits that are not through Sharp Health Plan. Some may even offer dental benefits for you and your adult dependents too. Check with your human resources department to see what they may offer.
If you are a Medicare Advantage member, please visit Sharp Direct Advantage to learn more about your dental benefits.
Delta Dental will automatically assign your eligible dependents a primary care dentist — this is to ensure that they can begin accessing care right away. You can change your primary care dentist at any time online or over the phone. Changes
requested before the 15th of the month will be effective the first day of the following month.
For questions regarding your dental benefits, please contact Delta Dental’s Customer Service Center at 1-855-370-4215.
We partner with VSP® to provide high-quality vision care and eyewear for your child dependents. To use your child’s vision coverage, follow these three easy steps:
Pediatric vision benefits are part of your plan benefits if you’re enrolled in an individual and family plan through Sharp Health Plan or Covered California™, or through certain employer
groups. Please read your Member Handbook to check your plan benefits.
Search for the right eye doctor for your child online or over the phone. No referral is needed from your child’s primary care physician before meeting with an in-network VSP provider.
An eye exam (or WellVision Exam®) allows your child’s VSP network doctor to assess eye health and check for vision problems. If your child receives a vision prescription from their VSP doctor, they may choose to get either
prescription glasses or contacts every 12 months.
Coverage for prescription glasses is split into three categories: frames, lenses and lens enhancements. VSP benefits for children include the following:
Contact lenses (instead of glasses)
To get contact lenses instead of glasses, your child’s VSP doctor will perform a contact lens exam in addition to a routine eye exam. Ask the doctor which contact lenses qualify for your child’s plan.
Your child’s VSP benefits come with extra savings on glasses, sunglasses, a routine retinal screening and laser vision correction. Log in to VSP to check your child’s benefits online
or ask their VSP network doctor for more information.
Please contact VSP at 1-800-877-7195 or log in to VSP to check your child’s benefits. You can also review your Member Handbook for more information.
