BlueCross BlueShield Coverage Availability & Fees
Every BlueCross BlueShield plan is different, and as a policyholder, your contract is unique. By paying a monthly premium for access to your plan’s benefits, you’re also responsible for meeting your annual deductible. This opens the door for your insurance company to start paying more.
Although your premium, deductible, and annual maximum are likely to be different than your colleague’s, the benefits might look similar, such as:
- 80-100% preventive services
- 70-80% minor restorative plans
- 50% major restorative plans
- 25-75% orthodontics, if chosen
Because we are in-network with BlueCross BlueShield, we have established fees that we believe are fair for patients. Promising to keep prices low so that you pay as little out of pocket as possible, you can easily meet your deductible early on in the year, ensuring that your insurer begins to pay more for any restorative procedure you might need later on.
While seeing someone in-network is advantageous, it is certainly not required. However, you should understand that choosing to see a dentist who is not in-network will lead you to pay more for the care you receive. Because there is no contract with your insurance company, fees will likely be higher, requiring you to pay the difference as well as a percentage of your out-of-pocket insurance pricing.
