Dental insurance can be expensive. Some 74 million Americans had no dental coverage in 2016 primarily because they could not afford it. What is alarming is individuals without dental benefits are likely to have higher incidences of other illness including:
67 percent more likely to have heart disease
50 percent more likely to have osteoporosis
29 percent more likely to have diabetes
But there is an affordable alternative to dental insurance – dental discount plans sometimes referred to as dental savings plans. The National Consumer Alliance has formed a relationship with Get Benefit Relief (GBR), a premier marketer of dental discount plans that provides access to the Aetna Dental Access® network with 158,000 dental practice locations nationwide (as of December 2014).
With the NCA/GBR Dental Discount Plan you can save 15% to 50% off everything from general dentistry and cleanings to root canals, crowns and orthodontia. What’s more, there are no administrative forms to file, there are no limits on use, and everyone is accepted.
This plan is NOT insurance. But if you’re looking for the quality care you deserve at a price you can afford ($5.95 per month), the NCA/GBR Dental Discount Plan might be for you.
