Four Dental Plans:
Dental Blue Basic – Dental Blue Enhanced – Dental Select HMO - Senior Dental
The Anthem Dental Blue PPO and Dental HMO plans offer comprehensive dental benefits for individuals and families. As an Anthem Dental Blue member you will automatically receive your services at a discounted rate, typically anywhere between 25% to 40%. By showing your ID card the procedures are discounted even before your Dental Blue insurance plan pays it’s portion.
Your savings don’t end there – Save during waiting periods and even after you have reached your annual maximum. Even if you reach your annual maximum for the year, you will save because you pay the negotiated fee instead of the dentist’s full price for dental services. The same applies during any waiting periods you may have under your plan or for non-covered services such as porcelain veneers, dental implants, TMJ and orthodontics. As long as you are a Dental Blue member, the dentists and specialists in the Dental Blue networks will extend the special rates we have negotiated with them to you.
Dental Care & your Health …
Consider this; people who suffer from periodontal disease, are twice as likely to have heart disease or a stroke. And there is also research linking poor oral health to diabetes, lung disease and premature births. Fortunately, regular dental check-ups can help detect the early warning signs of certain health related issues. That’s just one reason why it’s so important to take good care of your teeth and gums. And the Dental Blue plans from Anthem Blue Cross Life and Health Insurance company can help make it easy and affordable.

As a Dental Blue member, you can seen any dentist you want, however, you do have the potential for lower costs when you choose a dentist in the Dental Blue 100 network. Because in-network dentists have agreed to accept our fee schedule for services rendered. If you choose to go to a provider outside of the Dental Blue 100 network, you can be billed the difference between what we pay our in-network dentists and what your chosen dentist wishes to charge. But with more than 18,000 California dentists in our Dental Blue 100 network, it’s likely your dentist is part of our network.
