The NYSUT Member Benefits Trust-endorsed Group Dental Plans are provided and administered by Delta Dental.

Delta Dental Group Plans are NYSUT Member Benefits Trust (Member Benefits)-endorsed programs. Member Benefits has an endorsement arrangement of 2% of all premium paid to Delta Dental by NYSUT member groups; 0.5% of all claims paid by those groups with an Administrative Services Only (ASO) dental program; or 2% of all premiums paid to Delta Dental by NYSUT member groups with a pre-paid dental program. All such payments to Member Benefits are used solely to defray the costs of administering its various programs and, where appropriate, to enhance them. The Insurer pools the premiums of Member Benefits participants who are insured for the purposes of determining premium rates and accounting. Coverage outside of this plan may have rates and terms that are not the same as those obtainable through Member Benefits. The Insurer or Member Benefits may hold premium reserves that may be used to offset rate increases and/or fund such other expenses related to the plan as determined appropriate by Member Benefits. Member Benefits acts as your advocate; please contact Member Benefits at 800-626-8101 if you experience a problem with any endorsed program.
