CareFirst BlueCross® BlueShield® Dental Plan

The CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield PPO Dental Plan allows you to see any dentist, in or out-of-network. You save time and money when you see a CareFirst in-network (preferred) dentist. Your dentist files the claim for you, you don’t have a deductible and your dentist accepts the negotiated rate. If your dentist participates in the network, but is not "preferred," you still receive in-network benefits. When you go out of network you are still covered, but your expenses may be higher.

To see if your dentist is in the network or to find a dentist, go to CareFirst’s online provider directory.

Some of the features of the plan are outlined below.
