BlueCross BlueShield Coverage Availability & Fees

BlueCross BlueShield is a provider of dental plans for families and individuals. Their comprehensive policies provide coverage for common dental services for reduced rates. Although every policy differs, most plans include:

  • Up to 100% of preventive services
  • Up to 80% of basic dental services
  • Up to 50% of major dental work

Dentistry focuses on prevention to stop common issues from occurring in the first place, like cavities and gum disease. Not only does this prevent tooth loss, but also reduces the risk of needing costly procedures later. Researchers have found that $1 of preventative dentistry can save up to $50 on restorative fees. You can visit your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup for a copay. BlueCross BlueShield can cover up to 100% of the expenses for preventative services.

If your dentist finds anything concerning, you don't have to delay treatment because BlueCross BlueShield will cover some of the expenses. After meeting your annual deductible, you can use your yearly allowance to lower the amount you will pay out-of-pocket.

BlueCross BlueShield recommends choosing a dentist in their network to enjoy more coverage during your appointment. However, you can still use your insurance at an out-of-network dentist, but you may pay more. Our office works with both in-network and out-of-network patients.

Unfortunately, your dental insurance won't last forever. Your policy expires at the end of the year and you will lose anything you haven't used. Nothing accumulates, and you aren't reimbursed for your premiums or deductibles. On average, less than 3% of Americans meet or exceed their yearly limits, which results in billions of dollars lost every year. We don't want to see you throw money away.
