Healthcare costs remain a crisis for ordinary Americans. Most health insurance is still employer-provided — it represents over half of all coverage — but many households are feeling the squeeze under hiked premiums, with over 23 million people forking out large contributions relative to their income, whether on increased deductibles or out-of-pocket expenses.
Struggling under these exorbitant industry costs, over 27 million Americans are still uninsured. This number has barely changed since 2016, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, and represents the care provision crisis in the healthcare industry.
Currently a staggering one-third of working-age American adults — over 70 million people — do not use dental care, with most saying they simply cannot afford it. Looking to make dental care more accessible is DentalPlans.com, a marketplace for dental savings plans leading the industry to bring affordable dental solutions to over a million users since 1999.
Better Offerings Than The Tooth Fairy?
Of the one-third of Americans who currently do not have dental coverage, almost 60% say it is because of exorbitant costs, while over 20% report that dental care is an out-of-pocket expense not covered by their employer, according to data compiled by DentalPlans.com. DentalPlans.com is looking to change this by pairing people with dental savings plans that get them the treatment they need at a price they can afford.
As an online marketplace for affordable dental savings plans, DentalPlans.com is a one-stop-shop connecting patients with over 30 plans and over 140,000 participating dentists.
Dental savings plans are not insurance but are similar to a membership at a club, where a yearly subscription provides members with access to discounted rates. Plans offer several perks. They cost an average of between $79.95 and $199.95 and allow customers to access a wide range of services at the majority of dental practices. Customer surveys indicated an average of 50% savings when they switched to a dental savings plan through DentalPlans.com, though savings may vary by provider, location, and membership type.
Dental savings plans are a straightforward option, offering flat discounted rates ranging from 10% to 60%, without having health restrictions or monthly payments. They also give the user the flexibility to attend the dentist as frequently as necessary without exclusions or limitations, and plans often include savings for cosmetic and orthodontic procedures, specialties that may not be covered by an employer’s dental insurance. Dental savings plans also offer quick activation to get patients’ plans with no health restrictions or annual limits on the savings available.
DentalPlans.com prides itself as a leader in the dental savings plans industry. Its collection of over 30 plans makes it the largest marketplace, with the plans offered through its platform accepted by 7 in 10 practicing dentists nationwide. It features low-hassle signups and provides flexibility when it comes to changing plans, recognizing that dental needs can change quickly as a result of a broken tooth or the sudden necessity of a root canal.
The range of choices and convenience at DentaPlans.com offers a path forward for those who are seeking quality dental care but are unsure of their options.
