Your Seagate benefits include a choice of two dental plans—Basic and Enhanced. Both plans are administered by Anthem Dental effective January 1, 2023. Dental coverage is optional; you must enroll to have coverage. If you enrolled in Dental for 2023, you can expect to receive an Anthem Dental ID card.
When you use Anthem Dental Complete network dentists, your coverage levels will be higher and your out-of-pocket costs lower. Plus, in-network dentists will file your claim for you; if you use a non-Anthem Dental provider, you’ll need to pay up front, then submit a claim form with your receipt to be reimbursed for your share of the cost. You’ll always pay more out of network.
You'll save money when you visit a dentist in your plan network because Anthem and the dentist have agreed on pricing for covered services. Dentists who are not in your plan network have not agreed to pricing, and may bill you for the difference between what Anthem pays them and what the dentist usually charges.
If your dentist does not participate, you can select a new, in-network Anthem provider or continue using your current dental provider at the out-of-network costs for services.
