Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield is now providing Dental Xtra Benefits for its dental plan members who have coronary artery disease, diabetes, a history of oral cancer, or for women who are pregnant.
The Dental Xtra Benefits program provides additional preventive and nonsurgical periodontal treatment and maintenance dental care, dental health education and outreach. Dental Xtra Benefits are provided at no addiitonal cost when members use an in-network provider.
“Research shows that dental health is closely tied to many chronic illnesses, and can have a big impact on the health of a mother’s unborn child, so it only makes sense for us to provide these extra benefits to our members who are at higher risk,” said Robert Griffin, M.D., chief medical officer for Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield.
