Healthcare coverage enhances employee morale. And while coverage is important, your employees also want options.
Network size impacts the number of dentists who are able to serve your employees. The larger the network, the more likely it is that your employees can stay with their current dentist and get the most out of their benefit plan. If employees are 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 as well as their dependents.
• Location, location, location
It’s advantageous to have at least two dental offices in the network within 5 or 10 miles of your office. (Less time out of the 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 providers nationwide.
° The Delta Dental Premier network is the largest provider network in the country, with nearly 145,000 participating dentists.
° Delta Dental’s PPO Plan delivers the industry’s best effective discount — averaging over 20% nationally on all claims paid — resulting in nearly $3 billion in annual savings.
Make sure you and your employees know the benefits of their network today!
