 Dental HMO

​Associate Faculty Dental HMO Plan

Associate Faculty are eligible to participate in a DeltaCare dental HMO plan.  DeltaCare is a pre-paid dental program which requires the member to go to an in-network DeltaCare primary care dentist.  All care must be coordinated by the primary care dentist.  Many benefits are paid at 100%, with some benefits subject to co-payments. 

Associate faculty are eligible to enroll in the DeltaCare dental HMO plan within 30 days of the start of Fall or Spring semester.  Applications received within this 30 day window that are received by the 10th a month will have coverage take effect the first of the following month.  If you miss the 30 day enrollment window you will have to wait until the next enrollment period to begin coverage.

Enrollment in this program requires that you submit premium payment for your first month of coverage through the end of the calendar year.  Checks can be made payable to West Valley-Mission Community College District.
