Delta Dental Meeting Challenges of Health Care Reform

Mar 20, 2013

Delta Dental is a ready, willing and able partner when it comes to health care reform and its multitude of rules, regulations and challenges.

Delta's enterprise is in steady dialogue with state and federal regulators, while also actively engaged in planning new operational processes required under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Delta's expertise and participation in the ACA’s development – as well as in subsequent rulemaking by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) – gives them an edge that they bring to current client groups, dentists, enrollees and prospective health plan partners.

Their cross-functional product development team is creating new plan designs to meet the complex requirements of pediatric dental under current HHS guidance. As a result, they are now able to rate and quote ACA-compliant pediatric dental plans under a number of possible scenarios, allowing them to effectively serve prospective medical partners both inside and outside of state health exchanges. The team is also developing adult dental plans for supplemental offerings in the exchanges, where allowed, or outside the exchanges.

Activities underway inlcude:

Taken together, what all of these activities add up to is a substantial commitment by Delta's affiliated companies to help shape the new dental products and policies that will facilitate new coverage for millions of Americans.
