Competing on the Exchanges: Narrowing Your Dental Networks (2016)
Recorded On: 11/09/2016
Nearly 2 million people enrolled in standalone dental plans during the 2016 ACA Open Enrollment period. This growing market is different from the traditional group insurance market: consumers are spending their own money and, as a result, they value lower premiums over large networks. Narrowing your network by focusing on the providers with the best fee and utilization profiles can help attract and retain price-sensitive members.
During this webinar, we will discuss:
- An overview of narrow networks on exchanges
- Using a targeted approach to select dentists that best fit your profile
- Designing plans that will improve your prospects of attracting new exchange members
