Access Plans, DenteMax partnership makes dental plans more affordable

A new partnership between Access Plans USA and DenteMax makes it possible for Access Plans to utilize the DenteMax national dental network to enhance the Access Dental network in some of the company's discount and supplemental healthcare plans.

Access Plans USA is a nationwide distributor of health insurance and noninsurance healthcare programs that provide access to affordable healthcare for U.S. families and individuals, including the growing number of uninsured and/or underinsured. DenteMax is a dental network manager with more than 81,000 dental access points nationwide.

DenteMax requires all dentists to complete and pass credentialing before being admitted to the network, and dentists are recredentialed every three years to maintain this level of quality. DenteMax dentists agree to charge members using a fixed fee schedule that is typically 25% to 40% below their usual charges. This provides savings for these members every time they visit their DenteMax dentist.
