Anthem BlueCross BlueShield of Colorado Dental Plan

With the Anthem dental plans, you’ll get dental coverage on day one with no deductible deductible required for check-ups, cleanings and other preventive services. Most important, costs are typically reduced when you receive care from any Anthem participating network dentists. However, you also have the option to see any dentist not in the network, but your out-of-pocket costs may be higher.

Some highlights of Dental Indemnity USA coverage:


  • Coverage can be used to provide dental benefits to an individual, spouse, children or any combination of dependents.
  • A $50 deductible, based on fee schedule allowances, applies for dental procedures or services received by a covered individual during each benefit year.
  • Maximum deductible amount of $150 for family coverage.
  • Deductibles do not apply to oral exams, cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants and X-rays.
  • $1,000 orthodontia benefit for children under 19 years old
  • For more information on coverage and benefits, view the Dental Outline of Coverage.
