Beginning July 1, 2021, all preventive dental services are covered at 100% for in-network PPO and Traditional dental providers. Preventive dental services include exams, cleanings, X-rays, and fluoride and sealant treatments.
History has shown that at least 40% of State of Idaho employees enrolled in the dental plan have not visited a provider in the past year. Imagine the time and pain of costly dental or medical issues that could have been avoided.
Most people know that good oral and dental hygiene can help prevent bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease, but a healthy mouth can also decrease your risk of serious health problems such as heart attack, stroke, poorly controlled diabetes, and preterm labor.
Don’t have a regular dentist to get your cleanings every six months? Maximize your benefits by using the searchable provider feature on the Blue Cross of Idaho Member Portal to locate an in-network provider.
