BlueCare Dental PPOSM: Largest National Network

The BlueCare Dental PPO network continues to expand, increasing by almost 10 percent since February 2015. This growth gives BlueCare Dental PPO the largest national network in terms of dental access points*, now totaling over 410,000 nationwide. Such broad network coverage brings greater access to care for our members.

Deeper Discounts**
Broad access also means deep discounts. Discounts have improved by 3.6 percent on average in our five home states (Blue Cross and Blue Shield Plans in Illinois, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas) and nearly 6 percent nationally.

Current Network Discounts

Network dentists agree to accept the allowable amount as payment in full for eligible dental expenses. Members save money each time they use a network dentist, making annual dental dollars go further.
