Good dental health may be more important than you think. Studies have identified a link between oral health and chronic conditions such as heart disease. The best way to lower your risk is by keeping up on your preventive exams.
Your diagnostic and preventive services are covered at 100 percent when visiting a dentist in the Anthem Dental Complete network. That means teeth cleanings, periodic oral exam and bitewing X-rays are free when using an in-network provider. Other in-network services such as fillings, crowns and root canals are covered at 80 percent.
In addition to the above benefits, the state has expanded the dental benefits for 2023. Effective January 1, the annual limit is increasing from $1,500 to $2,000 per individual. Not only has the limit increased but also the covered services. Starting in 2023, an annual brush biopsy cancer screening will be covered along with more endodontic and periodontics services.
You can realize the greatest savings by going to an in-network dentist. While network dentists sign a contract with anthem to limit fees, nonparticipating dentists do not have limits on the amount they can charge you for services. If you decide to go to a nonparticipating dentist, be sure you understand your potential out-of-pocket costs before you receive services.
A list of dentists within the Dental Complete network can be found by going to www.Anthem.com and logging in to your account. Once there, put your curser on the “Care” drop-down menu on top of the page and select “Dental” under the “Care & Cost Finder” section. When the new page loads, you can enter your search criteria.
For 2023, Dental premiums will remain the same. Please see the below rates.
