Welcome to EmblemHealth Dental

Our Dental Plans

We offer three dental plans to employer groups throughout New York State and to their employees who live in or out of the state.* These plans are preferred provider organizations (PPO) and are underwritten by Group Health Incorporated (GHI), an EmblemHealth company. Groups range in size from as few as five employees to thousands of covered patients. Without a referral, our members can seek care from any general dentist or dental specialist who participates with their dental plan.

Our dental plans are:

  • EmblemHealth Preferred Dental
  • EmblemHealth Preferred Plus Dental
  • EmblemHealth Dental Access Program

*Individual plans are not available.

Our Dental Networks

Our four dental networks consist of over 8,000 dentists and dental specialists practicing in New York and New Jersey. Participants meet a high credentialing standard and agree to treat covered patients at the fees detailed in our fee schedules.

Our dental networks are:

  • EmblemHealth Preferred Dental
  • EmblemHealth Preferred Plus Dental
  • EmblemHealth Dental Access Program*
  • Spectrum**

If patients contact your office asking whether you participate with EmblemHealth, please ask which plan they are insured with before stating your participation status. This will help smooth relationships with patients when it comes to billing for out-of-pocket expenses.

*You must participate in the Preferred network to also participate in the Dental Access Program network.
**You must participate in the Preferred network to also participate in the Spectrum network.

Our Preferred and Preferred Plus Networks
These networks are separate and unrelated and each has distinct patient enrollment and reimbursement schedules. You may join one or both networks — the choice is yours. Your participation in both networks may prove beneficial to your practice. Plus, when you join our Preferred network you automatically become a participant of our discounted Dental Access Program, allowing you to see and treat patients with Dental Access coverage. Note: You may opt out of Dental Access.
