Did you know you should see your dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and checkup? Although you may think it’s unnecessary to schedule an appointment unless there’s an issue, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Routine dental care actually saves you money down the road because it prevents certain problems from developing in the first place, like tooth decay and gum disease. It’s easier than ever to get the services you need because you have dental insurance. Your BlueCross BlueShield dentist will help you achieve your oral health goals without breaking the bank.
Dental insurance focuses on prevention to ensure the teeth and gums stay healthy to last for a lifetime. Semi-annual cleanings and checkups reduce the need for costly treatments in the future through prevention and early detection. In fact, every $1 you spend on prevention can save you $8 to $50 on restorative or emergency care.
BlueCross BlueShield is a leader for state and Federal insurance. Paying your monthly premiums gives you access to the affordable coverage you need to visit your dentist regularly for minimal expense. If we do find a problem, it can be treated quickly using your policy. After paying your annual deductible, you’re given a yearly allowance to use toward the treatments you need to reinstate a healthy smile.
Depending on your specific policy, your coverage may include:
BlueCross BlueShield recommends you choose a dentist who is in their network because they have pre-negotiated rates with the dental office, but you have the freedom to visit any location that accepts your insurance. We work with both in-network and out-of-network patients to help them make the most of their annual coverage.
At the end of the year, your insurance benefits expire. On average, less than 3% of Americans meet or exceed their annual limits. We’ll help to ensure you don’t waste any of your coverage. We’ll maximize the value of your policy while staying within your budget.
We know dental insurance is pretty confusing. Our practice administrator is here to help you.
