Horizon Dental Choice

Get comprehensive dental benefits and low out-of-pocket costs with Horizon Dental Choice, the DPO from Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey.

Horizon Dental Choice (HDC) Plan S is the Dental Plan Organization (DPO) offered by Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey to state government employees and retirees and to certain local government and local education employer groups.

HDC covers 100 percent of all eligible preventive services and most basic dental services with no copayments, maximums or deductible when a primary care dentist in the HDC network provides the services. HDC also covers charges for all eligible major and specialty services with affordable copayment amounts when services are referred by your primary care dentist to a Horizon PPO Dental specialist. There is no out-of-network benefit.

Members must choose a primary care dentist from the HDC network and can change the primary care dentist monthly, if they wish, effective on the first day of any month by giving Horizon BCBSNJ 15 days’ notice.

To find dentists in the HDC network, use the Doctor & Hospital Finder and choose Horizon Dental Choice as the plan name to find a participating dentist near you, including detailed door-to-door directions and a street map.

Prevention is the best defense against dental disease. Once you’re enrolled, be sure to schedule your appointment for a checkup.
