With Dental Blue, members don’t pay a deductible for check-ups or diagnostic and preventive services.
Check-ups and cleanings are covered twice per benefit period. Plus, members can visit any licensed dentist they choose. There are no “in-network” restrictions.
Members pay a $75 annual deductible and 50 percent coinsurance and are covered for both basic services like routine fillings and extractions, and major services including crowns, bridges and dentures.
Applicants can choose Dental Blue coverage for themselves, their children or the entire family. There are three convenient payment options: monthly bank draft, semiannual payment or annual payment.
