Regence Dental at BellaSmiles Dentistry in Puyallup, WA
Regence, the Blue Shield provider for regional western cities, offers multiple plans to locals and employer groups. You may be covered through a personal and family plan from Regence, or your dental insurance from your employer may be part of this program, but it makes no difference to our team at BellaSmiles Dentistry. We accept Regence dental plans to help you get the preventative and restorative dental treatment you need and deserve. Simply bring your insurance ID card to our office during your first visit, and we’ll use your policy details to bill the insurance company for the full amount allowed by your plan.
Regence MedAdvantage is a Medicare Advantage (MA) Preferred Provider Organization (PPO), covering individuals who qualify for Medicare. These plans cover preventative dental care at no extra charge, and individuals who qualify can also choose to purchase additional dental coverage not automatically included. Preventative services include all of the following with no annual maximum dollar value:
- Examinations and cleanings: two each per calendar year
- One full-mouth X-ray every three years
- Bitewings: two per calendar year (any combination)
- Fluoride treatments: twice per calendar year (for members age 17 and under)
- Sealants for permanent bicuspid and molars (for members age 17 and under)
Regence Dental Care Plans
Expressions, the base plan from Regence dental coverage, includes 100% payment and no deductible for common preventative and diagnostic services. The BellaSmiles Dentistry team likes this element of the plan because our dentists prefer to prevent or stop problems before they require lengthy or invasive treatment that’s uncomfortable to you. Expressions also cover restorative services at a rate of 80% with an annual deductible (amounts vary).
If you think orthodontic work might be in your future, our team is equipped to handle those services in our office, and Regence offers an orthodontia add-on option to cover 50% of related services like braces.
Expressions Rewards increases your annual insurance savings by offering the same benefits as the Expressions plan, but with a $250 credit for the year following a 12-month period in which you don’t exceed your annual maximum.
BellaSmiles Dentistry can accept either plan to help you save on high-quality dental care.
