The Preferred Dentist Program, our dental preferred provider organization (PPO) product, is the foundation upon which we have built a wide range of dental options. With our Dental PPO, you can feel confident you'll be offering solutions to help you meet your clients' benefit objectives from both a cost and value perspective – with plans employees appreciate.
A Thoughtful Approach to Plan Design
Dental Plan Design: Through our thoughtful, practical, consultative approach to plan design, we can help you increase the value of your clients' dental benefit plans in ways that meet their goals. We accomplish this by integrating current market trends, clinical research and treatment protocols into our standard plans – providing coverage for services their employees want and need. Consider these examples.
Freedom of Choice
Choice of Dental Providers: Broad national networks mean greater access and less disruption for plan participants. Participants can also choose to go outside the network and still receive benefits, though out-of-pocket expenses may be greater.
Network Dental Fees: All participating dentists agree to accept negotiated fees as payment in full for all covered services provided. Negotiated dental fees are typically 15% to 45% below community average charges.2
A Quality Dental Plan
Dental Quality Program: The Quality Initiatives Program helps ensure that participants and dentists have access to information and tools that can help them make the most of their relationship with MetLife. For you and your clients, delivering the right resources and education may potentially help lower benefit costs over time,3 minimize employee "noise" and cultivate a workforce that sees real value in their dental benefits program.
Dental Plan Administration: We continue to streamline and improve the benefits delivery process, enhancing employee satisfaction and making it easier to administer benefit plans in a more efficient and cost-effective manner. Our goal is to create a "quiet" plan to give you and your clients more time to focus on other priorities.
MetLife Group Dental is backed by the commitment, knowledge and strength you need to deliver a quality dental benefits plan that satisfies the needs of your clients and their employees. Contact your MetLife representative to learn more.
1 Savings from enrolling in a dental benefits plan will depend on various factors, including the cost of the plan, how often participants visit the dentist and the cost of services rendered.
2 Negotiated fees refer to the fees that participating dentists have agreed to accept as payment in full, for services rendered by them. Negotiated fees are subject to change.
3 By educating participants on the benefits of slowing the progression of oral disease or preventing the occurrence of new disease, more costly procedures may potentially be avoided —potentially lowering costs over time.
