Insurance Management FAQs

What can the American Dental Association, the Pennsylvania Dental Association or my local dental society do to stop insurance carriers from getting a foothold in my area?

Dental associations typically do not try to stop insurance companies – indeed, to do so could create a substantial antitrust risk for the association and those involved. Whether and how to participate with an insurance carrier is an individual decision that each dentist must make.

The associations offer members a wealth of information about practice options, including managed care, to help members make informed decisions.
