Lower costs and better health with Oral Health for Overall HealthSM

Dental health has a big impact on your overall health and medical costs, especially for those with certain medical conditions. Our Oral Health for Overall Health program integrates medical and dental care to help members with qualifying conditions improve their overall health. This can help increase productivity, reduce absenteeism and lower medical and dental costs for you and your employees.

program integrates medical and dental care to help your employees and their family members with qualifying conditions improve their overall health. This can help increase productivity, reduce absenteeism and lower medical and dental costs for you and your employees.

Eligible employees are automatically enrolled (members can also self-enroll). Enrolled employees receive condition-specific, enhanced dental benefits, as well as proactive outreach and education.

These benefits are covered 100% and can add up to $1,000 in dental services. Plus:

  • There’s no cost to participate and no out-of-pocket expenses
  • There are no waiting periods
  • Services do not count toward the annual maximum.

Quality providers and the top-rated effective discounts in Florida

Florida Blue has large, highly discounted PPO networks in Florida. Our BlueDental Copayment and Choice PPO networks are ranked #1 and #2 in Florida for effective discounts.* High levels of in-network utilization result in discounts that translate into significant realized savings for you and your employees.

A factor in this higher utilization is that BlueDental networks include the dentists your employees turn to for care. Our local network management team works hard to ensure our networks include only the highest-quality dental providers in the state.

A large and growing national network

BlueDental PPO plans feature an extensive network of dentists throughout Florida—and nationwide. Our national network is large and growing—in fact, it’s over 13% larger in 2020. In addition to 7,500 dentists in Florida, our national network includes over 100,000 providers and more than 350,000 access points.

When you offer your employees a dental plan that includes broad access to quality providers, in addition to the top-rated effective discounts, you’re providing them with a quality dental plan that not only completes, but also enhances their benefits package.

Maximum Rollover helps benefits go further

With our optional Maximum Rollover benefit, your dental benefits can add up. If your employees don’t use all of their benefit dollars in a given year, Maximum Rollover lets them save a portion of that money for use in future years. These extra funds can be used to offset the costs of unexpected care or to plan for major services. Members of qualifying plans are automatically enrolled and rollover dollars do not expire.

Maximum Rollover provides your employees with extra incentive—and funds—to practice preventive care and improve their overall health.

Industry-leading, locally focused service

We’re proud to have a strong local presence—we maintain offices and walk-in centers throughout the state. Your employees can expect convenient, responsive support in person, by phone, or online—they have 247 access to their dental benefits through their Florida Blue account online. We consistently exceed industry standards with higher-than-average rates for responsiveness, first-call resolution, claims accuracy and turnaround time.
