Anthem Blue Cross : Dental plans

Dental plans

PW_A116660
Proper oral care is clearly essential to helping maintain good health. Research continues to establish links between periodontal disease and several serious health conditions such as heart disease and stroke, osteoporosis, low birth-weight pregnancy, diabetes and respiratory infection.1. 
That’s why in addition to health plans, we offer California individuals and families three great dental plans to choose from – two dental PPOs and one dental HMO.  
Dental Blue® PPO Plans 
We now offer two Dental Blue PPO plans for individuals and families – Dental Blue Basic and Dental Blue Enhanced. Both plans utilize our Dental Blue 100 network, which includes more than 18,600 dentists in California.  
A key feature of our Dental Blue plans is that you can take advantage of the rate we’ve negotiated with dentists for: 

Services received during waiting periods

Services received after you’ve reached your annual maximum

Non-covered services, including cosmetic services like veneers

 
The Dental Blue Basic plan has an annual maximum of $500 and offers coverage for: 

Cleanings, exams and X-rays

Fillings

Stainless steel crowns and pulpotomies for baby teeth

 
Plus, you get the negotiated discounts on non-covered services like crowns, root canals and orthodontia – and services once you’ve reached your annual maximum. 
The Dental Blue Enhanced plan has an annual maximum of $1,250 and includes enhanced coverage: 

Cleanings, exams and X-rays

Fillings

Major services like crowns and root canals

Orthodontia for children

 
Dental SelectHMO Plan 
Our Dental SelectHMO plan offers great coverage with lower out-of-pocket costs. It has no annual maximum or deductibles, and features: 

No charge for cleanings, exams or X-rays after a $5 office visit copayment

Most fillings are covered with no copayment after a six-month waiting period

Coverage for major services like crowns and root canals for fixed copayment amounts

Orthodontics and other services are available for fixed copayments

 
Services must be received from in-network dentists – but there are nearly 5,000 in California to choose from!  
 
Remember, good oral health and early disease detection can play an important role in helping you maintain your overall health. For more information on our dental plans, contact your insurance agent today.
