Basix Dental Savings and Wellness
The cost of dental care is a major concern to both students and health service administrators. To help with this issue, Gallagher Student makes the Basix Dental Savings Program available to you. It is important to understand the Dental Savings Program is not dental insurance. Basix contracts with dentists that agree to charge a reduced fee to students covered under your Gallagher Student plan. The student must pay for the services received at the time of service to receive the negotiated rate.
Savings vary but can be as high as 50% depending upon the type of service received and the specific contracted dentist providing the service. To use the program, simply:
- Make an appointment with a contracted dentist; all the contracted dentists are listed on our website, www.basixstudent.com.
- Make sure the dental office understands that you have access to the Basix program. We list an administrative contact person for each dentist to help clear up any confusion on the spot. We don't issue a separate identification card for the Basix program. The dentist's office may ask for your health plan identification card to make sure you have access to the program. If the office needs to check eligibility, call Gallagher Student at the number on your ID Card.
- Remember, you must pay for the services you receive at the time of service, so make sure you understand what forms of payment (check, credit card, etc.) the dentist accepts.
