Third-Party Payer Advocacy

Dental benefits and third-party payer issues are often rated among the most important concerns confronting dentists. It is important to understand that when it comes to interactions with third party payers, federal antitrust laws may limit the scope of what the ADA can do in terms of third party payer reimbursements and accompanying benefit policies. Learn more about Antitrust laws.

The resources below can help every dentist navigate the third party payer environment, whether you are trying to make a decision on signing the contract (by far the most important decision for your practice), you are already participating in a plan, or you have chosen to remain out of network. In addition to providing resources to help you succeed, ADA’s advocacy efforts along with its state partners, has helped implement legislation to aide in establishing an environment where dental practices can succeed.
