According to the Blue Cross Blue Shield website, the Blue Cross Blue Shield System is a network of 37 independently operated state-specific member companies that provide dental and health insurance. Each member company maintains a separate website detailing dental insurance options.
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, for example, maintains its own dental insurance webpage highlighting four categories of coverage: Blue Dental PPO Plus, Blue Dental PPO, Blue Dental EPO and Dental Wellness. Within each category, a variety of plans exist, tailored to differing budgetary requirements.
In addition to 37 states across the U.S., the Blue Cross Blue Shield system also has two independent companies in South America, located in Panama and Uraguay.
