What we're most proud of about the EmblemHealth Preferred Dental plan is that it has stood the test of time. It's been the plan of choice for decades for nearly 500,000 New Yorkers across the state.
We believe that our members stand by this plan primarily because of three reasons that — not incidentally — we think matter the most in a dental plan: affordability, 100% coverage for covered services and a strong, quality dental network.
Available to groups with 51 or more employees, EmblemHealth Preferred Dental covers in-network preventive services in full. Plus, once any applicable deductible is met, complex procedures are paid at 100% when performed by network dentists.
Complex procedures include:
Wisdom tooth extractions and related IV sedation
Repairs to existing crowns, dentures and bridgework
There are no additional out-of-pocket costs for members until applicable plan benefit maximums are met.
Strong Provider Coverage
Our participating dentist network is a proprietary, stable New York and New Jersey network established in 1988 and still growing today, with over 8,000 participating dentists. Plus, members have access to a nationwide network of over 150,000 dentists.
Unlike many other dental networks, our provider credentialing meets the rigorous standards of the NCQA Credentials Verification Organization (CVO) Certification Program — because we want our members to get the best dental care.
