BlueCare Dental HMO offers a dental network that is one of the largest in Illinois.
The BlueCare Dental HMO network includes specialists such as oral surgeons, orthodontists, pediatric dentists, endodontists (specialists in diseases of the nerve within the tooth) and periodontists (specialists in diseases of the gums and tissues). If a member needs specialty care, the contracting general dentist will make a referral.
Each dentist and facility is evaluated through a credentialing process before being accepted into the network and all network dental offices are periodically reviewed.
A complete list of contracting general dentists can be found online by visiting the Dental Provider Finder. Members can search for a network dentist near their home or office, and conveniently download a map and driving directions. Members can also contact customer service for assistance in locating a network dentist.
Provider changes made by the 20th of the month are effective the first day of the following month.
