Preferred Plus Dental

EmblemHealth's Preferred Plus network comprises more than 7,000 dentists in New York and New Jersey, plus access to providers nationwide. We continue to expand upon a core of dentists so members can find the care they need in-network, avoiding the high cost of out-of-network care while groups save money through our network discounts. This Plan offers:

  • 100% coverage for all Preventive services received in-network, with member cost sharing for Basic and Major services.
  • 7,200 provider listings in New York and New Jersey which has grown by more than 10% in each of the last two years.
  • Out-of-network benefits for covered services paid at the in-network fee level or at the 80th percentile of reasonable and customary fees.
  • Rollover feature for unused annual maximum benefit.
  • Access to a nationwide network of participating dentists.
  • One option that includes orthodontic coverage.
  • 91% of service calls are answered within 20 seconds.
  • 98% of claims are processed in less than 14 days.
  • Out-of-network reimbursements issued to members on a daily basis.
  • Network providers credentialed and re-credentialed by Dentistat, Inc., the industry's largest dental credentials verification organization. Dentistat reviews practice patterns and utilization profiles to identify dentists for inclusion in EmblemHealth networks.
