Anthem Blue Dental PPO and PPO Plus Voluntary Plans
We understand large group employers want to offer their employees a comprehensive health benefits package while still keeping an eye on their bottom line. That’s why we created our Anthem Blue Dental PPO and PPO Plus Voluntary Plans.
Available to groups with 51 or more employees, these plans allow employers to provide important dental care coverage to employees at little or no cost to the employer, with lower participation rate requirements than employer-paid dental coverage.
Broad, Convenient Provider Network
The Anthem Blue Dental PPO and PPO Plus plans feature access to nearly 70,000 credentialed dental providers nationwide, including general practitioners and specialists. As of 9/1/07
, the Anthem Dental PPO network
will include 1,389
provider locations. The Anthem Dental PPO Plus network
will include 1,564
Members may choose a dental provider from anywhere in the U.S. and may visit the dental specialist of their choice without a referral simply by making an appointment.
Although in-network and out-of-network provider reimbursement is the same, by choosing a dentist in the Anthem Dental network members can maximize their benefits and lower their out-of-pocket costs. In-network providers have agreed to accept our maximum benefit allowance as payment in full, less the employee’s coinsurance and deductible. This means that members will not be billed for the difference between a participating provider’s regular charge and the maximum benefit allowance. In-network providers will also complete the paperwork and file claims.
