How to sign up for the Essential dental buy-up plan.

The dental buy-up is completely optional. If you would like to sign up for the Essential plan for $10 per month, follow the quick steps below.

  1. Find your SCAN county and plan in the chart above.
    If your county or plan is not listed, the Essential plan does not apply to you. Call SCAN Member Services to learn about your dental buy-up options.
  2. Do you currently have a dental buy-up plan?

    No, I do not currently have a dental buy-up plan.
    To add the Essential plan for 2020, call SCAN Member Services at 1-800-559-3500.

    Yes, I currently have the Basic or Enhanced dental plan.
    Important: Basic and Enhanced dental coverage will end for the specific SCAN plans listed above on December 31, 2019. The Essential plan is the dental buy-up option available to you for 2020.
