A day in the Life of a BCBSM ID Card: Visiting the Dentist’s Office

Part 4: Dental Insurance

In part four of the A day in the life of a BCBSM ID card series, the ID card visits the dentist office. Dentists play a key role in keeping you healthy. That’s right. Oral health plays a very important role in overall health. Some medical conditions have symptoms that appear in the mouth. Regular dental visits can help spot oral health problems early on when treatment is likely to be simpler and more affordable. Research suggests there may be an association between gum disease and serious health conditions such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

In parts one through three of this series, we followed the BCBSM ID card everywhere from the primary care physician to the eye doctor to shopping for healthy products:

Part 1: Doctor’s office

Part 2: Eye doctor visit

Part 3: Healthy Blue XtrasSM

The Blues ID card helps you make the total body health connection with access to quality medical, dental, vision and prescription drug coverage.  Even better, you can conveniently access all your benefits with just one ID card.
