BCBSIL Dental Plans


Optional Dental Plan

Our Rating:

With the BCBSIL dental plan, you'll get dental coverage on day one with no deductible deductible required for check-ups, cleanings and other preventive services. Most important, costs are typically reduced when you receive care from any of our participating network dentists. However, you also have the option to see any dentist not in the network, but your out-of-pocket costs may be higher.

With BlueCare® Dental PPO, you'll get:

  • One of the highest maximum annual benefit levels available – up to $1,500 per person per year
  • Up to a 20% discount, up to a maximum savings of $1,000 for orthodontic services at participating dentists

For more information on coverage and benefits, view the BlueCare Dental Outline of Coverage 

You must enroll in a BCBSIL health plan in order to enroll in the dental plan (you have up to 31 days from the effective date of your policy to enroll). Shop for a plan now.
