Eagan, Minn. (PRWEB) November 08, 2011
Delta Dental of Nebraska announced today that A.M. Best Company, the insurance ratings organization, re-affirmed its financial strength rating of A (Excellent) for the 13th consecutive year. This is among the highest ratings of any dental plan in the nation. The financial strength rating reflects Delta Dental of Nebraska’s ability to pay claims.
A.M. Best has changed the issuer credit rating from “a+” to “a”. This change in a corporate debt rating will not affect Delta Dental of Nebraska or its customers. “The issuer credit rating reflects the company’s ability to pay its corporate debt, and we have none,” said Chris Earl, Chief Sales Officer at Delta Dental of Nebraska. “Delta Dental of Nebraska has not issued corporate debt in the past and has no future plans to do so.”
“In today’s economy, financially stable insurers are essential when employer groups are looking for benefits and service they can count on today and in the future,” continued Earl. “We are pleased to receive A.M. Best’s strong, independent affirmation of our financial stability.”
