The Dental Care Plus Group Now Offering Individual Dental Insurance Plans in Kentucky
Jun 16, 2015, 07:00 ET
LOUISVILLE, Ky., June 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Kentucky residents without dental insurance have a new option for protecting their oral, as well as their overall health. The Dental Care Plus Group announced today that individual dental insurance options are available for purchase throughout the state.
The individual plans are tailored to each customer's specific needs—be it Medicare eligibles, families, self-employed, recently retired, those without employer-sponsored plans, single persons or college students. Plan options cover the basics like preventive exams and cleanings, or individuals may choose additional coverage to help with more complex services like crowns and root canals.
During the past decade, the number of Americans with dental coverage has declined, according to the American Dental Association. Many opt for out-of-pocket payment methods to save money in the short-term, but this method can add up quickly.
Additionally, Americans without dental insurance are less likely to visit the dentist and more likely to suffer from:
- Gum disease,
- Heart disease, and
- Other oral health issues, according to The National Association of Dental Plans.
"According to the American Dental Hygienists' Association, every dollar spent on preventive oral care can save a consumer $8 to $40 on future dental costs," said Anthony A. Cook, president and CEO of The Dental Care Plus Group. "We wanted to provide dental plans that help Kentucky residents maintain great dental hygiene and consequentially, better overall health - all without breaking the bank."
The individual plans became available to all Kentucky consumers for purchase on June 1, 2015 with an effective date of July 1, 2015.
