Looking to Save Even More Money?
Prisma Dental is proud to be one of the first dental offices in the world to offer dental treatments to members of Companion Global Healthcare, a division of Blue Cross and Blue Shield.
Starting in late 2007, Companion Global Healthcare began offering BlueCross and BlueChoice HealthPlan members’ access to medical and surgical treatment at accredited hospitals and dental clinics overseas. Companion Global Dental recently affiliated with Prisma Dental Clinic located in San Jose, Costa Rica, as one of the first clinics in its overseas network. Companion Global Dental provides a single launch point for appointments, information and travel services. Phil Midden, manager of complementary healthcare programs at S.C. BlueCross, said rates at Prisma Dental are substantially lower than those at many U.S. clinics.
Continuing to expand our global alternatives by adding dental services reflects our ongoing commitment to help members seek the services they want at competitive prices. Many Americans need important dental care, and offering an international network is a natural next step for those wishing to travel for that care. I visited Prisma Dental and was thoroughly impressed.
- Phil Madden, Program Manager of Blue Cross Healthcare Programs
Prisma Dental Clinic is among the world’s most popular destinations for traditional and cosmetic dental care such as dental implants, porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns and bridges, composite white fillings, tooth bonding, teeth whitening and other services. The Companion Global Dental model is the first of its kind in South Carolina and among the first in the United States.
