Dental Services

Preventive services are available from the effective date of coverage, but some services require a waiting period. These include basic restorative, major restorative, endodontics, periodontics and oral surgery needs like root canals, tooth extractions and preparation of the mouth for dentures and anesthesia (when used during a covered service).

Network Options

BLUE DENTAL PPO

This network provides the lowest out-of-pocket costs for covered services, and is preferred in the Blue KC service area. Outside our service area, these are GRID providers.

BLUE DENTAL CHOICE

This additional network provides higher out-of-pocket costs for covered services. Outside our service area, these are GRID+ providers.

THE GRID/GRID+

The GRID/GRID+ network is for members who live, work or travel outside the Blue KC service area. These providers are Blue Cross and Blue Shield contracted dentists.

Dental Benefits

All Blue Dental Plans cover in-network preventive dental services at 100% when you see a PPO provider. So, you don't pay anything out-of-pocket when visiting a PPO dentist for a semi-annual check up. Members pay a deductible and coinsurance for other services covered under the plan.
