CSU offers two dental plans: Delta Dental Basic and Delta Dental Plus. Both plans are self-insured and administered by Delta Dental of Colorado. 

Delta Dental Basic Plan: A direct reimbursement plan, rather than dental insurance which benefits are payable according to the dentist’s billed charges. There is no provider network or deductible associated with this plan. 

Delta Dental Plus Plan: A dental insurance plan which allows for varying levels of benefit payments depending upon the type of service provided by your dentist. If you or your dependents are covered under another dental plan, the Plan’s coordination of benefits rules will apply.
