Study: Dental insurance costs expected to increase dramatically in 2010
Updated: 1/29/2010 7:01:01 PM

Insurance costs expected to increase in 2010 According to a new national survey, the costs of some of the most popular types of healthcare coverage are projected to increase considerably in the coming year. The study also found that the majority of dental insurance plans will see significant price increases.

The 2010 National Health Care Trend survey, conducted by Buck Consultants, analyzed the projected average annual increase of employer-sponsored benefit costs from over 100 health insurance providers.

Researchers discovered that costs of the more popular plans are projected to increase by more than 10 percent in 2010.

"Health insurers are concerned about higher costs due to federal mental health parity, as well as an increase in COBRA enrollment," said Harvey Sobel, a consulting actuary who directed the survey.

"There is also uncertainty due to health care reform and its impact on all sectors of the health care industry," he added.

Families who are searching for ways to save money on dental care may want to consider discount dental plans. As an alternative to dental insurance, these plans can save up to 60 percent compared to traditional insurance plans.
