BlueCross BlueShield Coverage Availability & Fees

BlueCross BlueShield (BCBS) offers a number of different dental plans, so you will need to check the details of your specific policy to see how it applies in various situations. In the meantime, here is an overview of how many dental insurance plans work:

  • Preventive care: 100% covered. Typically, this includes cleanings, exams, and routine X-rays.
  • Minor services: Up to 80% covered. Minor services usually encompass fillings, non-surgical extractions, and other fairly straightforward procedures.
  • Major services: Up to 50% covered. Crowns, dentures, and some forms of oral surgery usually fall into this category.

Your plan may have a number of stipulations. For example, there may be a waiting period before you can use it for certain services. You may also have a deductible and an annual maximum (the greatest dollar amount that BCBS is willing to pay for approved services within a 12-month period).

Because we are in-network with BlueCross BlueShield, our Denison dental team is in an ideal position to help you maximize your benefits. For example, since we have a contract with BCBS that controls prices, you may get more out of your annual maximum. In some cases, we are even able to schedule major services in a way that allows you to use two annual maximums instead of just one.
