A new webpage on ADA.org dedicated to third-party payer advocacy is a one-stop-shop for members looking for resources on plan participation, legislative matters and how the Association can help members navigate various dental benefit issues.

The webpage, ADA.org/dentalplans, includes information on member support for possible abusive practices by third-party payers; a complaint form; legislative advocacy on dental benefits; and tips on how to navigate contracts.

"We hear from members all the time that third-party payer issues are one of their top concerns," said Dr. Ronald Riggins, chair of the ADA Council on Dental Benefit Programs. "We have so many resources at the ADA and talented and dedicated staff to help members that we wanted to find a way to consolidate everything into one, easy to navigate website for members to visit when they have questions."
