How the PDP Option Works
The PDP Option has networks of participating dentists and other dental providers who have agreed to a negotiated fee arrangement for covered dental services when treating JPMorgan Chase participants. However, you can also choose to receive care from any other dental provider and still receive benefits.
If you're interested in enrolling in the PDP Option, you should consult the participating provider directory. The directory lists the dentists who are members of the network. You may view an online provider directory by accessing MetLife's website (https://mybenefits.metlife.com) or the Benefits Web Center via My Health. You can also call MetLife at (888) 673-9582 if you need help finding a provider.
Under the Preferred Dentist Program (PDP) Option, you should submit an itemized list of any proposed course of treatment (including recent pre-treatment X-rays) that you expect will cost more than $300, before work has begun. A dental consultant at MetLife will review the proposed treatment before work begins and MetLife will inform you and your dentist of the amount of covered charges. That way, you'll understand the benefits that will be paid before treatment begins. Benefits will be paid according to the Plan provisions in effect when the services are actually rendered. The amount may change if the treatment changes from that which was predetermined or if frequency limits apply. Except in the case of an emergency, you may not want to begin the course of treatment until you know what amount your JPMorgan Chase Dental Plan option will pay.
