What is Dental Blue® Preferred℠ insurance?

Dental Blue® Preferred℠ is a competitively priced Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) insurance option that lets you choose the plan that best meets your employees’ needs.

Who should consider it?

Dental coverage is an attractive employee benefit, and a good way to retain key staff. For fully-insured and self-funded organizations with more than 50 employees, Dental Blue Preferred can be an additional offering that saves employers money while still offering access to a broad, national network. The new “balanced” plan is an easy-to-understand and easy-to-use option that gives employees the same benefit level for diagnostic, preventive, basic and major services.
