In today’s marketplace, many disease management programs focus primarily on medical benefits.
Employers may not consider dental-related costs as seriously as other medical conditions when they develop their benefit strategies even though there could be significant costs associated with treating dental disease.
Considering the cost of treating dental disease and the association of oral health to overall health, dental disease management programs become the next sensible step for corporate benefits decision makers to integrate into their programs, according to Dental Disease Management: What Makes an Effective Program.
The MetLife Dental Health Manager1 is a complete dental disease management program, providing tangible insights into the use of dental benefits and the oral health of employees. These insights can assist you in understanding how your dental plan and disease management program are running and help you make informed decisions about plan design to better meet the needs of your company and employees.
For employees, the MetLife Dental Health Manager offers the ability to better understand and track their dental risk and disease - helping them make the most of their dental benefits and manage their oral and overall health.
With minimal up-front administration, the program is easy to get up and running and can be added to a MetLife preferred provider organization plan at any time. For more information, contact your insurance broker, benefits consultant or MetLife representative.
