As a broker, your clients look to you to help them decide which benefits plans make the most sense for their company and employees.
But what do employers want in a dental insurance provider? Here are some considerations, many of which you may already be familiar with:
One size doesn’t fit all.
As the nation’s leading dental benefits carrier, we offer a wide variety of plans for groups of all sizes. We also strive to provide options for groups with limited budgets.
Network size matters.
Delta Dental covers more than 62 million Americans in more than 114,000 groups nationally. Not only do we have the largest network, we achieve real cost savings too:
• Delta Dental Premier is the largest provider network in the country, with 148,000 participating (nationally)
• The Delta Dental PPO network has more than 95,000 participating providers (nationally).
• A recent dental network study shows that Delta Dental’s PPO Plan delivers the industry’s best effective discount – averaging 3% nationally on paid claims.
Employees want dental benefits.
Dental benefits contribute to employee retention and satisfaction. The statistics speak for themselves – in 2000, only 31% of all businesses offered dental benefits. Today, 53% of employers offer dental coverage. Offering dental benefits may also help employers attract new talent. New grads rank dental insurance among the top 5 most important workplace benefits.
