Coordination of Benefit legislation joins AOB efforts
For the 2012 Legislative Session the IDA will seek a comprehensive coordination of dental benefits legislative proposal. This proposal will stand alongside the Association’s longstanding support of the passage of a comprehensive assignment of benefit law.
The legislation would combine a non-covered services proposal with a dental-only assignment of benefit language. A solution for patients who are dually insured is also part of the legislation. Patients with dental insurance are often penalized by their network, or by the fact that their secondary policy won’t pay if their primary insurance pays out. The IDA believes it is not fair to pay two premiums but only enjoy the benefits of one.
The IDA will soon distribute information on how you can join the effort to ensure that patients are getting the full value of their dental benefit. Every voice makes the argument stronger, and you are needed.
