S.C. BlueCross, BlueChoice HealthPlan Expand Global Offerings to Include Dental Services
Date:11/29/2007

COLUMBIA, S.C., Nov. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina and BlueChoice(R) HealthPlan of South Carolina members now have streamlined access to international dental services through Companion Global Dental, a division of Companion Global Healthcare Inc.

Earlier this year, Companion Global Healthcare began offering BlueCross and BlueChoice HealthPlan members access to medical and surgical treatment at accredited hospitals overseas. Companion Global Dental provides similar services for those seeking dental care. Companion Global Healthcare and Companion Global Dental also are available to contract with insurance companies and employer groups, and can assist the uninsured in obtaining overseas care.

Companion Global Dental (http://www.companionglobaldental.com) recently affiliated with Prisma Dental Clinic and Meza Dental Care, both located in San Jose, Costa Rica, as 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 health care programs at S.C. BlueCross, said rates at both clinics 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," Midden said. "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 and Meza, and was thoroughly impressed."

Prisma Dental Clinic is among the world's most popular destinations for traditional and cosmetic dental care. With an emphasis on cosmetic dentistry, Meza Dental Care provides 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. BlueCross and BlueChoice HealthPlan members can learn more by visiting the "Discounts & Added Values" pages of http://www.SouthCarolinaBlues.com or http://www.BlueChoiceSC.com and clicking on the "Companion Global Dental" link. Members may also call 1-877-232-0765.

Companion Global Dental has affiliated with World Access, a leading provider of specialty insurance and assistance, to assist members with travel services, including transportation and accommodations, air ambulance, and claims management.

Headquartered in Columbia, S.C., BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina and wholly owned subsidiary BlueChoice HealthPlan of South Carolina Inc. are independent licensees of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association. BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina and its family of companies include more than 20 subsidiaries involved in health insurance services, U.S. DOD health plan and Medicare contracts, and other insurance and employee benefits services.

Headquartered in Columbia, S.C., Companion Global Healthcare Inc. provides access to U.S.-accredited medical facilities worldwide, as well as associated concierge services.
