By DrBicuspid Staff

May 6, 2020 -- Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield has launched a virtual dental care program with partner The TeleDentists.

Through its partnership with The TeleDentists, Anthem is offering consumers access to dental care that is available 24/7, 365 days a year, in the event of an emergency. Virtual exams are covered at 100% with no deductibles, co-pays, paperwork, or claims to file through June 30, 2020.

"Teledentistry matters now more than ever, so this is a great time for Anthem to expand its virtual oral care offering," said Scott Towers, president of Dental and Vision Business at Anthem. "Millions of Americans have been asked to stay home to slow the spread of COVID-19, but many still need access to dental care from dentists. Helping consumers get that care is our [No. 1] priority, and through this partnership with The TeleDentists, we're proud to offer a teledentistry option that is convenient, safe and affordable."

This online and mobile-enabled care is compliant with HIPAA.
