Individual Plan Pricing Model Updates In Progress

November 29, 2016

As part of our yearly updates, Individual plan pricing is being revised to an age-banded model. Under this new format, rates are adjusted according to the age of the subscriber and thereby better reflect the expected utilization of the consumer.

Pricing will be based on the age of the subscriber in the following age ranges 0-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, and 65+. A set dollar amount will then be added to the subscriber rate when a spouse and/or other eligible dependent is added to the plan.

The pricing model updates are already in place for new Utah subscribers. The remaining 30+ states in which Dental Select offers individual plans will be revised in the coming months. All current individual plan subscribers and their dependents will be reviewed upon their anniversary date.

With this recent change, any printed individual plan rate documents are now obsolete. Please refer to our website for current pricing and plan details. These updates will not affect custom individual plan web page links you may have on your website.  For questions, contact your Dental Select Sales or Account Administration representative.
