Product Information and Member Cards

  • Diocese of Syracuse members will have Dental Blue Options coverage. 
  • New member cards will be issued. Members should use their new member cards for dental services rendered on or after July 1, 2020. 
  • Dental claims for services rendered prior to July 1, 2020 should be submitted with the patient’s previous member card information. 

Verifying Benefits and Eligibility

  • It is important to check member cards and verify benefits and eligibility at each visit. 
  • Make a copy of your patient’s new member card for your records.
