PITTSBURGH, Sept. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pittsburgh Business Group on Health (PBGH) today announces it is launching a preferred provider relationship with Delta Dental Plans Association, which is designed to save PBGH employer-members significant money associated with dental benefits for their employees – primarily through substantially discounted administrative fees.
According to Diane McClune, vice president, PBGH, the health care coalition's relationship with Delta Dental provides several distinct advantages for PBGH's 100+ employer-members across the region, including:
- Value-based purchasing that provides reduced dental administration fees – enabling employers to save money by leveraging the collective power of PBGH's group purchasing initiatives
- Access to Delta Dental's owned and operated extensive national network, which helps to ensure quality of care and predictable fees for employers
- Live, local representatives trained specifically in dental benefits, as well as user-friendly online services to help benefit administrators and enrollees manage benefits
- Employer-based wellness program that helps manage care costs and empower members to be conscious participants in oral health
According to McClune, the initiative with Delta Dental further expands PBGH's commitment to offering competitive, cost-savings solutions for companies, including preferred pricing for administrative fees and enhanced value-added services.
"As the region's only business organization solely focused on helping companies save money associated with health care and benefits costs, aligning with Delta Dental helps PBGH advance its mission of providing a high return on health care solutions for employer members, particularly as it relates to offering preferred pricing and savings on administrative fees for companies," said McClune.
Delta Dental joins other PBGH-offered health and benefits plans, which also are designed to provide cost-effective solutions for employers, as well as to improve employee health and positively impact costs.
"Programs, such as the cost savings dental program offered by Delta Dental, are why employers should always think PBGH first when it comes to exploring new ways companies can save money while still providing a high quality benefit for employees," added McClune.
For more information about how companies can take advantage of the substantial cost savings offered through the PBGH-Delta Dental agreement, regional employers are encouraged to contact their broker or plan consultant. Or, companies can contact PBGH directly at www.pbghpa.com.
