Insurance 101?

We suggest that you check out Life Insurance, Disability, Long Term Care and Retirement as these risks may cause much more financial devastating to your budget than dental bills.

    • Yes, dental can be added to your health insurance plan with Blue Shield.

      We are here to help you. Blue Shield pays us for that.

      You can choose any dentist for a PPO plan, but you get paid best when you use a dentist in the network. For HMO you pick a dentist from the list.
