Dental Coverage

As a Blue Cross Community Health Plans (BCCHP) member, you receive dental coverage. BCCHP works with DentaQuest* to provide you with dental care. Visit the DentaQuest site to choose an in-network dentist.

What Services Are Covered?

You do not need approval from your PCP for dental care. Some dental care requires prior approval before getting treatment. Without approval for those services, you may have to pay.
