Optional Supplemental Dental and Vision Plan

From BCNSM Advantage

When you have Medicare, dental and vision costs can be a big pain point. Original Medicare doesn't include preventive dental or vision coverage, which means you pay out of pocket when you see the dentist or eye doctor. And if you need dental work on a regular basis or wear glasses, your expenses can really add up.

Most of our Medicare Advantage plans cover preventive dental and vision checkups. But a lot of them don't cover dental work, glasses or contacts.

If you have a BCN Advantage HMO-POS or HMO plan, you have the option to pay a little extra each month for a dental and vision plan that covers some of those costs.

You can add this feature to all BCN Advantage plans:

HMO Local HMO MyChoice Wellness
HMO-POS Basic HMO-POS Elements
HMO-POS Classic HMO-POS Prestige

What it covers

  • Fillings, root canals, simple tooth extractions, crowns and crown repairs with 50 percent coinsurance. Pays up to $1,000 per year.
  • Dental fluoride treatments and brush biopsies with no copay.
  • $200 toward glasses or contacts every two years.

How do I enroll in this plan?

You can enroll in this plan online when you enroll in your BCN Advantage HMO-POS or HMO plan. Just click "Yes" when it asks you if you want to enroll in the BCN Advantage Dental/Vision Buy-up Product for an additional $19.40 a month.

Or you can download a paper application from our Forms page, fill it out and send it in.
