Selecting a dental plan for your employees is all about balance. On the one hand, you want a dental plan that fits your budget. But you also want the right mix of basic benefits with more specialized benefits that help target your employees’ overall health. When you choose Anthem dental plans, you can count on:
| Strong network access|
| Solid coverage at a good price|
| Benefits that make sense for helping improve dental health — and overall health|
| Service you can trust|
Dental Prime and Complete Plans
When we designed our new Dental Prime and Complete plans, we kept overall health in mind. Most of our dental plans offer:
| Coverage for dental implants and composite (tooth-colored) fillings on any tooth.|
| Brush biopsy benefits with lab analysis, together with a surgical biopsy with lab analysis. These help detect oral cancer, a sometimes deadly disease.|
| An extra cleaning or checkup each year for members who are pregnant or living with diabetes. |
| Optional orthodontic benefits for kids and adults.|
| Diagnostic and preventive services like cleanings and X-rays covered at 100% at a network dentist. These services can be key to long-term dental health. |
Dental Net® Dental HMO Plans
Our Dental Net DHMOs have no annual maximums,1 no deductibles and no waiting periods. That’s unlike many dental plans that limit the amount of services members can get in a year. Also, members can get a good idea of their costs because Dental Net plans have set copays for nearly 300 different procedures, including fillings and crowns. Dental Net even covers things like composite (tooth-colored) fillings on any tooth and general anesthesia for oral surgery.
Plus, members will really like Dental Net’s orthodontic coverage. The costs are lower than you might expect. These are just $1,695 for children up to age 18 and $1,895 for adults, plus $200 for retention. Without insurance, these services would cost a lot more.
The Dental Net network has 8,000 general dentist and specialist access points in California. Services must be received from Dental Net providers. Members choose a primary care dentist who coordinates any specialty care or orthodontic services that are needed.
Voluntary Dental Plans
Want to offer dental coverage that costs you even less? With voluntary dental benefits, you can give your employees access to the extra coverage they need. And it comes at no extra cost to you. Your employees get the advantage of group rates rather than a higher cost individual dental plan and, in some cases, they get access to benefits not available on an individual basis.
International Emergency Dental Program
All our dental members and their eligible, covered dependents automatically have access to the International Emergency Dental Program.* With this program, they can get emergency dental care from our listing of credentialed dentists while traveling or working nearly anywhere in the world.
It is important to understand how an in-network dentist may be able to help you save money. In-network dentists have agreed in a contract with us to accept specific amounts for various dental services. Because there is no similar contract with out-of-network dentists, they can bill you for the difference between what we pay and what they charge.
