Episode #281: Top 10 Questions from RIDA Members Part 2
In this podcast episode, Gary and Naren discuss the possibility of successfully resigning from PPO plans by the end of the year in response to a growing grassroots movement of dentists who are fed up with the administrative burden and lower fees of these plans. Many companies and employers request lower premiums; insurance administrators are accommodating them by dropping fees. The hosts explore the shift in dentists’ mindset from wondering if they can drop PPO plans to how quickly they can do so. They also share encouraging case studies and examples of how reducing insurance dependence can significantly improve dental practices. They also highlight the benefits of going free-for-service but note that reducing insurance dependence can also bring about substantial improvements. Ultimately, they conclude that reducing insurance dependence within a year is possible.
