Have you become a Medicare Advantage (MA) network dentist yet? If not, you may be missing out on a great opportunity to add more patients to your practice. Regular Medicare patients don’t have dental care, but Medicare Advantage plans are different.

What are Medicare Advantage plans?

Medicare Advantage plans (also known as Part C or MA plans) are plans offered by Medicare-approved private companies that follow the rules set by Medicare. These plans are still considered to be Medicare, but they offer coverage for services that standard Medicare doesn’t cover, such as vision, hearing and, most importantly for you, dental.

Why join the Medicare Advantage network?

Joining the Medicare Advantage network can be a great choice for your practice. Nearly 20% of the United States’ population will be 65 or older by 2030, according to Census projections. That will mean about 65 million eligible Medicare Advantage patients.

By joining our Medicare Advantage dentist network, you’ll enjoy the following benefits:

  • Your practice will be listed in our Medicare Advantage network directory
  • You’ll retain current patients who join the Medicare Advantage network and are required to visit an MA network dentist
  • You’ll gain access to new patients who are looking for an MA network dentist

Open enrollment starts October 15 and runs through December 7. After the open enrollment period ends, coverage will begin January 1, 2022. Don’t wait until it’s too late!
