Dental Homes for Blue Cross Healthy Kids Members

Dental Homes for Healthy Kids Dental patients help build strong relationships between them and their dental care provider. Assignments can be made only to an actively participating dentist.


Eligible members can change their assigned dental home at any time and do not have to be assigned to your office to receive treatment. You will be reimbursed for care delivered to a Healthy Kids Dental patient even if they are not assigned to your office at the time of treatment.
