Every day for the next decade, about 10,000 Americans will turn 65. It’s estimated that by 2030, approximately 18% of the nation’s population will be 65 or older.
This means that every single day, more and more people become eligible for insurance coverage through Medicare and can purchase supplemental Medicare Advantage dental plans through approved vendors like Delta Dental. If you want your practice to serve this growing population of patients, joining Delta Dental’s Medicare Advantage network is the perfect place to start.
Joining Delta Dental’s Medicare Advantage network can provide a substantial boost to both attracting and keeping patients:
You can still join our Medicare Advantage network.
Rules that prohibit payment to providers who have opted out of participation in Medicare don’t apply to supplemental benefits like dental, according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The policy became effective on January 1, 2022. Even if you’ve opted out of Medicare through CMS, you can still join the Delta Dental Medicare network and provide services to our Medicare Advantage members.
If you’re contracted with Medicare Advantage networks, you can charge Medicare Advantage patients for any non-covered service. Members must simply give informed consent so they are aware of any out-of-pocket costs.
