DentaQuest Panel Promotes Benefits of Medical-Dental Integration at AHIP Institute 2014

DentaQuest, a leading U.S. dental benefits management company, will host a session at the America’s Health Insurance Plans Institute 2014 (AHIP) in Seattle on June 12 about ancillary benefits and medical-dental integration. Mike Enright, National Director

The federal health insurance exchange enrolled more than eight million Americans, 15 % of whom purchased a dental plan in addition to a medical plan. Ancillary benefit companies have been meeting consumer interest for dental, vision and other coverage areas not traditionally offered by health plans.  Today, ancillary benefits -- dental in particular -- are becoming a required component of comprehensive health coverage—for many good reasons. Consumer appetite for dental benefits in this first year of public insurance exchanges reveals an opportunity for health insurance organizations to offer increased value to their members. This presentation will provide insight into what health insurance providers need to know to leverage dental benefits for growth.
