Horizon Dental Choice (HDC) Network
Dentists in the HDC Network treat members in our dental managed care products. Services are reimbursed on a capitated basis. The products provide dentists with a consistent cash flow to better manage finances and the potential to capitalize on employers moving to prepaid dental care.

TotalCare Network
Similar to our Horizon Dental Choice plans, TotalCare is a capitated managed dental program. To join this network, dental practices must be able to provide all general and specialty services in one office setting.
