For Blue Cross and Blue Shield® Plans in Illinois, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas, claims with dates of service 7/1/2020 – 8/31/2020 will be paid up to $10 per member, per date of service to cover PPE expenses for in-network dentists.

How PPE payments will work:
As a courtesy to our members and our in-network dental providers, we will be reviewing all claims already submitted for dates of service during the months of April, May and June for PPE payment. Claims previously submitted with code D1999 will be re-evaluated. Do not resubmit any claims that have already been submitted.
If a member previously made payments for PPE, the member may need to be refunded.
