Simplified Benefits Are Coming

November 29, 2016

Dental Select CEO, Brent Williams, joined a panel of healthcare luminaries to discuss a wide variety of health and wellness issues on Monday, October 17th, for the 2016 Utah Business Healthcare Roundtable.

This year’s roundtable was hosted by Holland & Hart and moderated by Dave Gessel, who is the Executive Vice President for the Utah Hospital Association. Multiple items were discussed, including the topic of educating the public about health insurance.

“People put more research into buying a mobile phone than they will into healthcare,” Williams said. “Which one do you think will be more important in their lifetime?”

Williams went on to add, “It really all comes back to education. We have an obligation to help the public understand what is available to them.”

To that end, Dental Select has been working on various projects and initiatives to help educate its members, groups, brokers, and providers. With a goal of simplifying plan designs, as well as becoming more transparent with the information, Dental Select aims to help all clients make the best possible decision for their health. While other insurance companies may have forgot or lost sight of why they exist, Dental Select’s mantra is to simplify and educate one’s way to better health.

With that in mind, and recognizing that simple and easy-to-use technology is crucial to the user experience, Dental Select announced the roll out of their new benefits and claims management system – launching in 2017. The new, enhanced system, along with the Dental Select smartphone app, will feature a complete redesign of the web portal, making it easier for members to enroll, view claims, and review invoices, all in the convenience of one location.
