Health care coverage enhances employer morale. Coverage is important, but your employees want options.
Network size impacts the numbers of dentists who are able to serve your employees. The larger the network, the less likely employees will need to change dentists. Employees gets the most out of their plan — and if they’re happy — so are you!
A few things to keep in mind:
• Consider dependents
The network size should be large enough to meet the needs of your employees and their dependents.
• Location, location, location
It’s advantageous to have at least 2 dental offices in the network within 5 or 10 miles of your office. (Less time spent out-of-office for dental visits.)
• Share the benefits
Let employees know the benefits of network size.
° The Delta Dental PPO network has more than 95,000 dentists nationwide.
° Delta Dental Premier network is the largest provider network in the country, with nearly 145,000 participating dentists.
Keep the company happy! Make sure your employees know the benefits of their network.
