Why You May Need A Separate Dental Plan

Many people find value in buying dental coverage apart from their medical plan because separate plans usually offer more choices and may have better benefits to meet the needs of your whole family.

Have a health plan with minimal or no dental benefits?

  • Consider enrolling in a separate or stand-alone Anthem dental plan, which you can buy any time of the year.
  • Separate or stand-alone dental plans cover routine preventive care to complex procedures like root canals.
  • The plan covers cleanings, exams, and X-rays at 100% with no waiting period when you visit a dentist in your plan’s network.
  • A dental plan can save you money on dental care and help protect the health of you and your family.

Our experts can answer your questions and help you understand how to choose and enroll in a dental insurance plan that’s right for you.
