No. You can only add your spouse (Domestic Partner) and children up to the age of 26.

Do I have to choose a network general dentist?

Yes. In order to take advantage of the cost savings of our plans, you must select a dentist and use him or her for your dental care. If you require specialty care, your network general dentist will refer you to a network specialist.

What if my dentist is not on your list?

That means your dentist does not participate in the LIBERTY Dental Plan network. You should select a doctor from the list of participating dentists. Services provided by a non-network dentist without LIBERTY Dental Plan’s prior approval (except emergencies) are not covered under your plan. Participating dentists must meet standards to become a part of the network.

How do I find participating dentists?

Search for participating dentists by visiting the online directory here.

If your current dentist accepts HMO’s and meets our credentialing standards and is interested in becoming a participating provider, he or she can call (888)703-6999 to get more information on joining the network.

Is there a maximum usage of the plan?

No. Liberty Dental Plan does NOT have a maximum amount of coverage. Unlike many Dental Insurance Plans, Liberty Dental Plan will continue to provide coverage for the entire year, no matter how much you have used your Plan. Please see for more details.

When does my plan become effective?

Upon enrollment into an Individual/Family Plan online, your plan will be activated within 2 business days upon verification of credit card approval.

How do I receive care?

You must select a Primary Care Dentist when enrolling in the CA50 HMO Plan. (See note below for CA80 and CA90 enrollees.) This dentist will be responsible for providing the dental care needs for you and your family, including referring you to a specialist should it be necessary. You may select any LIBERTY Dental Plan contracted provider accepting your Plan. However, you may want to consider a choice convenient to your residence or work. You and your entire family must use the same dentist.

If you wish to change to another LIBERTY Dental Plan contracted provider, simply contact our Member Services Department (888-703-6999) by the 20th day of any month and the change will be effective the first day of the following month.

All services and benefits under our Plans are covered only if provided by a contracted LIBERTY Dental Plan participating Primary Care Dentist or if referred to a Dental Specialist by LIBERTY Dental Plan. The only time you may receive care outside of the network is for true emergency dental services necessary when you are out-of-the area or cannot contact your Primary Care Dentist or LIBERTY Dental Plan. LIBERTY Dental Plan will reimburse you for true emergency dental treatment expenses up to a maximum of $75.00 per year, less applicable co-payments.

Please NOTE: Those enrolling in Plan CA80 and CA90 do not need to select a Primary Care Dentist at the point of enrollment. To access care with CA80 and CA90 Plans, simply contact a LIBERTY Dental Plan provider who is contracted to provide services under your selected Plan for an appointment.
