The University’s dental plan, administered by Arkansas BlueCross BlueShield, offers coverage for preventive, basic and major care, plus orthodontia services for children under age 18. If you don't meet your annual benefit maximum during the year, you can carry over up to $1,500 of the unused maximum amount to the following year.
Here’s how much you’ll pay for dental services:
$50/person ($100 maximum/family)
Annual Maximum Benefit
Preventive Care (e.g., cleanings, exams, x-rays)
No cost (and no deductible)
10% (no deductible)
Basic Care (e.g., fillings, extractions, root canals)
20% after deductible
28% after deductible
Major Care (e.g., crowns, bridges, partials, implants)
50% after deductible
55% after deductible
Orthodontia (dependent children under age 18)
Lifetime Maximum Benefit
If you visit an out-of-network dentist, you will pay more for services. And, you will pay 100% of the difference between the full out-of-network cost and the reasonable and customary level charged by Arkansas BlueCross and BlueShield. So you’ll always save money by visiting a dentist in the Select PPO Plus Network.
