Provider recruitment — We commit to a unique recruiting campaign targeting the dentists your employees use. We encourage our members to nominate dentists through our dental referral card that can be used during open enrollment, our website, or toll-free number. Education — Your employees have access to information on the importance of regular dental care They can go to MyDentalIQ.com and take a free dental health assessment. They also can visit Humana.com to read BrushUp, an online publication that provides tips on how to maintain good dental health.

Editor’s Note: You will begin to see carriers re-positioning their offerings to self-funded platforms. Fully insured business offerings for health insurance will evaporate with MLC requirements to kick in in 2011.
