Dental

PG&E offers dental coverage administered by Delta Dental. The PG&E-sponsored dental plans provide coverage worldwide and allow you to receive care from any licensed dentist. When you go to a Delta Dental network dentist, your benefits are always higher and you pay less because services are billed at prenegotiated, discounted rates. If you go to a nonparticipating dentist, you pay more.

As a reminder you can use Health Account credits to help pay these dental care costs.

To find a dentist in the Delta Dental Premier or Delta Dental PPO network, visit Delta Dental's PG&E-specific website or call Delta Dental at 1-888-217-5323.

Dental FAQs

Can I use my Health Account to pay for my dental visit?

Yes. You may have to initially pay for your dental visit with your personal funds, but you can get reimbursed by filing a claim to the Health Account.

Can I use my WageWorks card to pay at the time of service?

Yes, you can use your WageWorks card at the time of service, but it is best to ask your dentist to process your claim first and then bill you after the claim has been processed. Most providers won’t know exactly how much your benefit plans will pay.

If I pay for my dental visit using my personal funds, how can I get reimbursed?

If you pay for your dental visit using your personal funds, you can be reimbursed by filing a claim to the Health Account or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) if you have one. See the Reimbursements section under Medical Anthem Members or Medial Kaiser Members for more information on how to process your reimbursement.
