NEW 2024 Blue Medicare Advantage Dental Network
You gave us feedback, and we took action. Blue KC is rolling out a new dental network for 2024 (replacing DentaQuest). In partnership with Dominion Dental, our third-party administrator, we are building out a robust network with superior customer service. Note: This is not the Blue KC commercial dental network.
You will find a PDF of the Blue KC MA Dental Network on the Blue KC Agent Portal, Medicare, Plan Documents beginning October 15. This document will be updated often as we add to the network.
Your Agent Portal is a source of materials you need
2024 Plan Year information will be live October 1 on the Blue KC Agent Portal. Once logged in, click Medicare in the left navigation and connect to:
- Electronic Enrollment using Connecture (new this year – tabs for 2023 and 2024 in the same link)
- Plan Documents, including digital Information Kit, Formulary, Dental Providers, ANOCs, EOCs, Summary of Benefits
- Agent Materials, including the Broker User Guide and Rollout Slide Deck
- Agent Product Education, including supplemental benefit FAQs
Watch a recap of the 2024 Blue Medicare Advantage Broker Rollouts
More than 400 agents attended three rollout sessions and the new Broker Showcase. Thank you! If you were not able to attend or want to review the sessions, watch Broker Development and Engagement Managers Angie Sutton and Barb Bins color analyze the Broker Rollout slides in this rousing video. It will be available October 1 at Blue KC Agent Portal, Resources, Marketing Communications.
IMPORTANT: 2024 member ID card and Blue Benefit Bucks card
Please remind clients to KEEP their current Blue Benefit Bucks card (white card), which we will reload with the appropriate amount for their 2024 plan. As a reminder, members must spend their 2023 Member Rewards by March 31, 2024.
Members will receive a new 2024 member ID card, which is WHITE and easier to read. Their PCP will be listed on the front of the card.
NEW Enhanced user experience in Connecture
You can now use the same button to link to the Electronic Enrollment process in Connecture for 2023 and 2024. Simply select the tab with the year you want. And, you can keep an electronic Scope of Appointment for each enrollment. Blue KC rewards you with $50 for each electronic enrollment (awarded in April 2024).
