Letters: Delta disallow policy

August 22, 2016 I had to respond about the article "Association Asks Delta Dental to Reject Proposed Disallow Policy," (ADA News, May 16).

This is all about money and money only regardless of what Delta states. They want to discourage treatment and make the dentist work harder and take more time to complete a procedure. The less money they pay, the more they make and profit. Also, Delta is hopeful that the patient will not return for the other quadrants of treatment. Again, money saved is money profited.

It is a total joke for Delta to state "quality of care issues." Insurance has cut the fees for dentistry by 30-70 percent for most common dental procedures. There is nothing about Delta or any other insurance for that matter, that they care or have any interest in "quality care."

It is only about money and profit on their behalf. Insurance is a for-profit entity and they are doing their very best to increase profits daily at the expense of the patient, dentist and employer.
