Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois Dental PPO Provider Network Grows, New ID Cards Issued
Health Care Service Corporation, which operates through its Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans in Illinois, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas, is proud to announce a 26 percent growth increase in its Dental PPO Network, which is administered by the Dental Network of America (DNoA). This significant network growth places DNoA as the largest dental network, in terms of access points in the United States (per NetMinder data as of September 2008).
As a result of this growth, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois recently issued new ID cards to employees who are dental PPO members. The new ID cards include the new dental network name – DNoA Preferred Network – on the back of the card, along with the corresponding network phone number, to promote recognition by new and existing providers in the growing network. For member claims and inquiries, the dental customer service number also remains on the card. If they have not done so already, members should dispose of their old cards and begin using the new cards immediately.
