Plantation, FL (October 18, 2013)
PLANTATION, FL (October 18, 2013) — October is National Dental Hygiene Month and October 1st marked the first day of open enrollment for The Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA is changing the health care landscape by extending health benefits to Americans who may not have had the opportunity to purchase them in the past. While dental coverage is considered an essential health benefit for children and is required under the new health care exchanges, dental coverage for adults is not a requirement. The National Academy for State Health Policy estimates that 85 million Americans currently lack dental insurance. With the ACA expected to only reduce the amount of adults without dental insurance by about 5 percent, as estimated by the American Dental Association, which still leaves nearly 81 million Americans in need of an affordable dental care option.
“Quality dental care is a key factor in a person’s overall health and lack of care can lead to a variety of risk factors,” says Jennifer Stoll, president of DentalPlans.com. “That’s why DentalPlans.com is passionate about providing valuable dental saving plans in a format that allows consumers to access information that is easy to understand, compare, and is available to everyone. We in fact are already a private exchange for dental savings plans, and have been operating as a marketplace since 1999.”
DentalPlans.com offers a selection of more than 30 dental saving plans, which are already filling a growing gap for many Americans without dental insurance. Dental savings plans provide a program that helps individuals, families, and groups save on their dental care and other health-related services, for one low annual fee. Similar to a warehouse club, consumers purchase an annual membership and receive discounted fees for services such as annual cleanings, x-rays, crowns and root canals. Select plans even offer savings on cosmetic and orthodontic procedures, which are not typically covered by insurance.
The benefits of a dental savings plan include savings up to 60 percent off what you would pay without a savings plan or insurance, no waiting periods, no health restrictions, no paperwork hassles and no annual limits. Even if you already have dental insurance, the discounts offered by dental savings plans may be used after your dental insurance maximum has been reached, for even more savings on your dental care with most plans. The savings can be substantial. For example:
Using the Careington Care 500 Series plan, which costs a low annual fee of $189.95, a family of four could save $626 just on their annual ADA recommended treatments alone.* That’s $436 in savings, when including the cost of the plan. And the savings can really add up when considering additional dental care that may be needed for you and your family, like sealants for children’s teeth, crowns, braces, and more.
The company offers an extensive selection of comprehensive dental savings plans from the nation’s most trusted networks and more than 100,000 dentists to choose from nationwide. Participating dental specialists include orthodontists, oral surgeons, periodontists, endodontists, pediatric dentists, and general dentists. DentalPlans.com also offers discount plans that offer savings on vision, hearing, chiropractic, and pharmaceutical services.
