BlueCross BlueShield Dental Coverage & Availability
BlueCross BlueShield dental insurance policies will vary from person to person. This is due to the variety of plans, elections you can make, and a number of other variables. For this reason, we can only offer accurate price estimates after reviewing your individual policy, and in the case of advanced procedures, applying for coverage preapproval may be recommended. In most cases, BlueCross BlueShield plans will offer 100% coverage for preventive dentistry, so staying up to date with your six month dental exams is the simplest way to maximize your benefits. In addition to covering the costs of preventive care, most BlueCross BlueShield plans offer 70 to 80% coverage for minor restorations like tooth-colored fillings. More advanced treatments like dental crowns or replacement teeth are covered between 50 and 70%. For the most complex services, we will likely recommend submitting a preauthorization request to ensure your benefits are available when you need them.
One of the advantages of working with an in-network office is that we have an existing relationship with your dental insurance provider, so these preapproval and preauthorization requests are usually returned quickly. We also agree to your plan’s set pricing for treatments. Out of network dentists may charge higher prices, but you’ll need to pay the difference in cost as well as your out of pocket percentage of treatment. Most dental offices try to fit within your plan’s fees but visiting an in-network practice just means you won’t ever need to worry about that.
If you want to learn more about your BlueCross BlueShield dental benefit plan, any of our team members will be happy to answer your questions.

She will likely be the first person you’ll see when you reach our office, so don’t hesitate to chat with Jessica about your benefits. She’ll be happy to help. Jessica has years of experience handling dental insurance claims, and she understands how confusing and needlessly complicated they can seem when you don’t look at them every day. Jessica loves helping patients to understand their policies, so they can make the most of their benefits. Don’t hesitate to ask her about your available coverage.
