Podcast: Breaking down the antitrust lawsuits against Delta Dental

By Kevin Henry, DrBicuspid.com editor in chief

November 21, 2019 -- Plenty is happening in the legal world right now involving Delta Dental, and the results could have a big impact on your practice and our industry. With that in mind, we are very fortunate to have insurance expert Teresa Duncan of Odyssey Management to help break down what is currently going on and what it could mean for you.

In short, 11 independent antitrust lawsuits have been filed against various Delta Dental brands. One of the complaints filed was in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.

At the bottom of the legal complaint is the feeling that Delta Dental (which operates in every U.S. state) works as a conglomerate rather than as independent entities in each state.

Duncan believes that the rulings (whichever way the decisions may go) will have a significant impact on carrier/provider relationships. She explains why and what you need to know about the lawsuits and their effects in the in-depth podcast below.
