Blue Shield Dental Insurance
Blue Shield offers two dental health insurance plans. They can be combined with vision insurance for patients needing glasses or contact lenses. The PPO plan gives the flexibility of picking your dentist from over 21,000 providers in California, including our Placerville dentists. The HMO plan offers a vast network of nine to ten thousand primary providers and 6,000 different specialists. Coverage for most services is prompt, with the exception of orthodontics coverage. There is a one year waiting period for orthodontics treatment.
While the HMO option is less expensive, the PPO option offers more flexibility. The Placerville Dental Group accepts both plans.
