The BlueCare Dental HMO plan encourages members to maintain good dental health by offering full coverage for preventive and diagnostic care.
Members must select a contracting dentist to provide and coordinate dental care for them and their dependents. When they do, preventive and diagnostic care is covered at 100%. There is no deductible, no out-of-pocket cost and no claim forms. They will typically pay less for dental services with a dental HMO than they would with another type of dental plan.
BlueCare Dental HMO offers a network that is one of the largest in Illinois. Dentists in the BlueCare Dental HMO network have agreed to accept lower, predetermined fees for their services. This allows Blue Cross to offer an HMO dental plan option with:
- competitive premiums
- savings for employers and their employees
After enrollment, members will receive a wallet card to indicate their dental eligibility when visiting a BlueCare Dental HMO contracting dentist.
Contracting dentists receive eligibility information the first of each month.
