Anthem Ohio Dental & Vision Plans
Take control of your health with the right dental and vision coverage. You may apply for coverage at any time during the year. Your Effective Date will be the first day of the following month after receipt of application and premium.
The mouth and eyes are important parts of your body and your health. They can show early warning signs of disease – so regular dental and vision checkups help you stay healthy. That’s why taking care of your total health requires not just medical coverage, but also dental and vision plans.
You’ve probably heard before that dental health is an important part of overall health. In fact, 90% of the body’s diseases first show signs and symptoms in the mouth.*
Routine eye checkups are about more than making sure you can see clearly. They’re important to health, safety and learning. Even if you think you have 20/20 vision, it’s key that you’re checked regularly — at every age.
Eye exams can detect major health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. Some eye diseases have no warning signs. So people may not even know their vision is at risk.
Getting the dental and vision plans you need
Off-exchange, standalone coverage from Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Anthem) can help you get the dental and vision care you need for your total health. Many of our dental plans cover you 100% for exams, cleanings and
X-rays. All of our vision plans cover you for yearly eye exams.
All-in-one or separate plans?
You can buy a medical plan that includes dental and vision benefits — or you can buy separate plans. You may want to think about buying your dental and vision separate from your medical plan. Separate plans usually offer more choices and may have more benefits to meet your needs. The main differences are in how you apply for coverage and how you are billed.
