BlueCross BlueShield Dental Insurance Coverage & Availability
Each patient will have a unique dental insurance policy outlining coverage for a percentage of the cost of preventive and restorative dentistry services provided in exchange for the payment of a monthly plan premium. Depending on the coverage elected by the patient and their employer, BlueCross BlueShield of Nebraska will pay for all or part of the cost of specific treatments. Like other PPO insurance plans, BlueCross BlueShield offers the most coverage for preventive care. These treatments help patients to keep their smiles whole and healthy and avoid the need for more advanced restorative services that receive lower percentages of treatment coverage. Preventive care services, including checkups and teeth cleanings, are usually covered between 80 and 100%. Minor restorative dentistry options like tooth-colored fillings usually receive 70 to 80% coverage. More advanced restorative solutions like crowns and replacement teeth receive 50 to 70% coverage. Benefits for other services like orthodontics and dental sedation is not always offered, and we’ll need to review your policy to provide accurate estimates for your available coverage.
PPO dental insurance providers like BlueCross BlueShield offer patients the opportunity to select whatever dental care provider they think will offer them the best coverage. However, there are some benefits to visiting an in-network dental office, including:
- Familiarity – we work with BlueCross BlueShield plans regularly, so we understand typical coverage and can help you to make the most of your insurance benefits.
- Minimized costs – we agree to charge fees that fall within the insurer’s set maximum pricing for treatment cots, and we know the annual plan maximums. This means we can ensure patients have the lowest out of pocket costs.
- Fast responses – when we need preapprovals or authorizations, our relationship with the insurer typically means we hear back from them right away.
