What is a Discount Dental Program?

A discount dental plan is not considered dental insurance, but it is a common type of dental plan. Unlike a dental insurance policy, you will not have set co-payments or coinsurance amounts under this type of plan. The payments that you make for a discount dental plan are considered a membership fee. As a member of a discount dental plan, you are able to receive dental services from a specific list of dentists at a discounted rate.

Under a discount dental plan, payments for rendered services are made directly to the dentist. The dentists who participate in the plan agree to provide services at a discounted rate. They agree to these rates in exchange for the referrals that come to them from the discount dental plan company.

Members of a discount dental plan are only entitled to discounts if they use a participating dentist. The list of participating dentists is typically more extensive than the list of participating dentists under an HMO and comparable to a list of dentists under a PPO.

Discount dental plans may offer savings that are not available under typical dental insurance. These may include no annual limit, no exclusions and lower monthly payments. Membership in a discount dental plan is usually made through an annual payment, but some plans accept monthly payment arrangements.
