Dental insurance is a vital benefit for improving or protecting physical and financial wellness. Dental exams can often reveal health conditions that may otherwise have been missed, and dental expenses without insurance can be costly. If your organization does not provide dental insurance, consider the health and wellness impact you could make on employees by adding it to your offerings.
Since it’s the end of the year, your employees may have questions about using their benefits before the year is out or about your plans for next year. Remind them to use their current dental plans before December 31, if possible. If you do not offer dental coverage and are not able to in 2016, you may also encourage staff to look for individual plans. A few states are now offering adult dental coverage on ACA exchanges.
