Setting up an extensive, reasonable dental plan for your employees require thorough attention and dedicated focus so you can keep business costs fair and your employees happy. Along with medical insurance, dental coverage can be used to your advantage in seeking out and maintaining top talent in your company.
Here are some questions you should ponder on before selecting the most suitable dental plan for your employees:
Carefully deliberate which dental procedures you want covered for your employees. Dental plans generally promote preventive treatments like routine cleanings and checkups, as well as x-rays and fillings. Complex practices like dentures, braces, or bridges aren’t common but can still be included in the dental plan. Moreover, ask about co-payments, deductibles and maximum annual limits involved.
How much does it cost?
Decide if you wish to fully sponsor your employees’ dental plans, or if you only want to shell out 80% of the monthly insurance costs. You can also opt to make your employees distribute their own payments while you take care of administrative costs and payroll deductions. Though financing is in place, be ready for varying prices as the value of premiums still depend on business location, company size, and dentist availability.
How do I pick the ideal plan?
While looking around for dental care administrators, ask about their claims processing and their record of customer service and reputation to gauge their ability to accommodate you and your company. Confirm that they work with competent dental professionals.
