  • 2 cleanings per year
  • 2 exams per year
  • 1 fluoride treatment per year
  • Annual x-rays
  • Deep Cleanings
  • Treatment of Gum Disease
  • Emergency dental services

What Services Are Not Covered?

This plan does not cover some dental services such as:

  • Cosmetic dentistry
  • Tooth bleaching
  • Implants

Supplemental Dental Benefit

In addition to your dental coverage, you may be able to get a supplemental dental benefit as a Blue Cross Community MMAI plan member. This benefit—a $800 allowance—would help pay for dental services that would NOT otherwise be covered by Medicare or Medicaid.

To learn more about dental benefits, see the Member Handbook on the Forms & Documents page.

* Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) dental care services are administered by DentaQuest. BCBSIL and DentaQuest are separate companies.
