During these tough economic times, many large companies are cutting costs by changing their insurance plan coverage for their employees to a very low paying plan. Employers are looking to cut costs at the expense of their employees. These plans pay very poorly so then the subscriber (the patient) ends up paying more out-of-pocket. These plans tend to be Delta Dental and some Blue Cross/Carefirst plans. Delta plans tend to cover less procedures for patients or only pay for bad quality restorations such as silver fillings and metal crowns.
Employees can collaborate with each other to complain to their Human resources office so that they can request for a better plan in order to get better dental services with better dental materials in their mouth for the health of their bodies.
