Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 07, 2013
The popularity of in-network PPO insurance plans has soared in recent years. The same is true of another type of dental coverage: dental discount plans. Now some of the features of both types have been combined into a new offering available at DentalInsurance.com, the preeminent online exchange platform for dental insurance plan and discount dental plan comparison shopping since 2001.
"For individuals who need to see a dentist right away, or those who are concerned about controlling costs, the broad network availability and greater affordability, compared to traditional PPO coverage, make the new PPO Advantage plan from Nationwide exceptionally attractive," Mark R. Kelsey, President, Kelsey National Corporation, said. "The PPO Advantage plan performs like a traditional PPO in terms of prevention—cleaning and exams—but it’s more cost effective when it comes to basic and major benefits and cost."
Unlike a traditional discount dental plan, the PPO Advantage plan gives consumers access to the Maximum Care Network, one of the country’s largest dental care networks. Also, unlike many low-cost insurance products, the plan has no waiting period for basic or major benefits.
"Financially, this is comparable to a discount card or an HMO," Kelsey notes. "Consumers pay less, gain access to benefits right away, and all within the same great network as more expensive PPO options, which is very rare with discount dental plans."
The PPO Advantage plan, which is available now from DentalInsurance.com, maintains the traditional strengths of PPO plans. Because all work is done by dentists who have agreed to pre-negotiated fees, patients know in advance the maximum cost of their dental treatments. The plan includes a calendar year maximum for covered individuals, a deductible, and waiting periods for certain procedures.
