How can I get the most out of my Blue DentalSM individual plan?
Who is this for?
If you want to know how to get the most value out of your Blue Dental plan, this gives you some tips.
Taking care of your teeth is an important part of taking care of your total health. So if you've added a Blue Dental plan to your medical plan, you've made a smart choice. It's even smarter to get the most out of your dental coverage. Here are some ways you can do that.
Use your preventive benefit
Finding health and dental problems before they get serious keeps costs down. Dentists use your teeth and gums to identify signs of many diseases. That's why using your plan's preventive benefit is a good plan. Our Blue Dental plans for individuals and small group employers cover preventive care 80 to 100 percent. So it's a good value, too.
All our dental plans come with access to Blue Dental Connection. It's a free online tool you can use to brush up on dental health, find a dentist and more. Learn about Blue Dental Connection.
Choose an in-network dentist
Our PPO, or preferred provider organization dental plans give you choice. They cover services from in-network dentists, dentists who participate with us through Blue Par Select, and out-of-network dentists. But you'll save the most when you go to an in-network dentist. How much? Here's a couple of examples. To learn more, see How do I find a dentist?
