Group Dental Insurance Plans


Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska offers companies with two or more employees affordable, flexible group dental insurance that’s easy to use. And, orthodontic benefits are available for groups with 10 or more employees.

Our Dental Network

To be a great dental plan, a great dental network is needed. So, we offer one of the largest PPO dental networks in the nation.

Our network is part of a network of multiple Blue Cross and Blue Shield Plans that offers broad access to in-network dentists nationwide – providing patients with lower out-of-pocket costs.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska members and their covered dependents with our group dental insurance receive in-network benefits whenever they use dentists in the network – located in Nebraska and throughout the nation.

To learn more about our network and group dental insurance solutions, contact your Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska sales representative.
