BlueCare Dental HMO encourages your employees to maintain good dental health by offering full coverage for preventive and diagnostic care.

  • Employees must select a contracting dentist to provide and coordinate dental care for them and their dependents.

  • When they do, preventive and diagnostic care is covered at 100 percent. There is no deductible, no out-of-pocket cost and no claim forms.

  • They will typically pay less for dental services with a dental HMO than they would with another type of dental plan.

  • BlueCare Dental HMO offers a network that is one of the largest in Illinois.

  • Dentists in the BlueCare Dental HMO network have agreed to accept lower, predetermined fees for their services.

  • This allows Blue Cross to offer an HMO dental plan option with competitive premiums &  savings for employers and their employees


Dental PPOs offers one of the largest dental networks in Illinois, and the national network includes more than 57,000 contracting general and specialty dental providers.

In a PPO plan, costs are typically reduced when members receive care from network providers. Dentists in the DPPO network have agreed to pre-determined fees for their services. The plan’s Schedule of Maximum Allowances (SMA), on average, is lower than usual fees. Because of this, Blue Cross is able to offer dental plans with:

  • Competitive premiums

  • Savings for employers and their employees

  • Out-of-Network claims are either paid at the Maximum Allowance level (Based on the Network Providers Negotiated Rates- which costs less) or at the Usual and Customary level (which costs more)


Employers and employees realize the most savings when care is received from PPO Network Dentists. Employees pay less out-of-pocket and will not be balanced billed. They can also see any dental specialist within the Network without a referral.

Dental Freedom PPO- Benefit Coinsurance levels are the same for both network and non-network dental providers.

Dental Choice PPO- Benefit Coinsurance levels are higher when using network dental providers, and lower when using non-network dentists.

With either PPO plan option, employees have the freedom to select a dentist from within the Network or go Outside the network and still be covered (although at a reduced level of coverage).
