Covid and Dental Insurance

Sandy Springs Dentist near meThe Dental Care System is MORE Broken since COVID. The insurer-controlled dental care system has been broken for years! And now, a model that did not work prior to COVID-19 is only getting worse. Patient distancing has forced lower patient volumes and decreased production, while the cost of PPE and infection control further misaligns practice costs and PPO reimbursement. Can your dentist be profitable on our existing PPO fee schedules and terms with a 25-35% decline in production and a 5-10% increase in costs? What happens when PPOs lower your dentist’s fees next year and subsequent years? 

We know you would like to see the cost of delivery come down, but it’s not.  In the new Covid environment it costs more to deliver your dentistry and the insurance companies are fighting dentists tooth and nail to deny these increases in delivery.

We need your help in pushing back on your insurer.  You need to contact your insurance commissioner and let them know your needs are the same, but your coverage is under attack and being reduced by the powerful insurance controlled dental care system.
