  • Plans designed for prevention and savings: All plans feature low monthly premiums and coverage of routine preventive exams, cleanings, and X-rays. Plus, market leading in-network discounts and unique value-adds can help employees save on out-of-pocket expenses.
  • Robust provider network: Members in PPO and EPO plans have access to one of the largest dental networks in the Pennsylvania five-county area and also have access to the GRID/GRID+ — a national network of 20 Blue Plans representing 42 Blue Plan service areas, with over 500,000 access points. We also have one of the largest Managed Care-style networks in the region.2
  • In-network and out-of-network benefits: Members save more when they use in-network providers.
  • No waiting periods: Members can begin using dental benefits on day one.
  • Value-adds: Plans include access to discounts and extra coverage options to help employees save.

Note: Managed Dental Care plans require the selection of a Primary Dental Office (PDO) from the Plan’s dental Managed Care network.

The member’s PDO provides routine care and arranges or provides most other necessary and appropriate dental services. Except for emergency services, benefits are covered only when provided or properly referred by the member’s PDO. The manner of accessing benefits through the PDO is made clear in the terms of the Group Contract and Certificate of Coverage.
