BC/BS Patients2022-09-16T17:06:02-05:00

To Our Valued Patient,

Many years ago, we chose to participate as providers with the BC/BS PPO Dental Network. For several years following the decision, the number of patients who carried the BC/BS PPO dental plan was manageable.

More recently, there has been an upward trend in the number of our patients carrying the BC/BS insurance plan. We are grateful in the continued trust our patients and community have in our practice. However, due to decreasing reimbursement rates from the BC/BS that are non-negotiable, we have decided to make a change.

Effective January 1, 2023, we will no longer be considered a preferred provider for BC/BS.

We have researched the trend of decreasing insurance reimbursement rates carefully and believe that maintaining our practice’s autonomy will allow us to better care for our patients.

What does this mean?

We want to be abundantly clear that we are not turning away any of our BC/BS patients. Our current office policy is to submit to any dental insurance, BC/BS included.

You may be subject to slightly different rates for some areas of your dental care. You may be responsible for a balance for procedures that may have been covered at a higher rate in the past. We will continue to assist you during this time of change.

We appreciate you as a patient and will continue to help you with your dental needs.

Respectfully,

Mason, Faith & Hoscheit D.D.S.
