Local doctors are taking the hassle and high costs out of treating their patients by offering a direct membership benefit plan.
According to the U.S Surgeon General, 108 million Americans are without dental insurance, and dental problems account for 146 million hours of missed work, 51 million days of missed school and 41 million days of restricted activities.
“What is so sad about these statistics is that they don’t have to be,” says Dr. Cazes. Uninsured people don’t go to the dentist because they can’t afford out of pocket costs. Traditional dental insurance offers high costs and little benefit to most, so what are people to do who want affordable dental care? Dr. Jay and Dr. Janice say the answer is direct dental plans like CazesCare.
The secret to this national problem is not more traditional insurance options. “The best option for my patients is an in house membership plan. Patients sign up and start getting affordable care they need that day.”
The benefit of an in-house plan are numerous when put side-by-side to traditional dental insurance.
- No Deductibles
- No Annual Maximums
- No Claim Forms
- No Balance Billing
- No Age Limitations
- No Pre-Determination of Benefits Required
“It is great for the patient because they get what they need at a reasonable price and I don’t have to spend more time on complicated and time-consuming paperwork-it is a win win.” With CazesCare, patients and providers can choose a plan that will provide the most benefits to patients based on their individual dental needs. The basic Wellness Plan includes all regular exams and x-rays, an emergency exam as well as a discount on all other procedures (including cosmetic). Patients can save upwards of $350 a year in costs with CazesCare Plans.
Bob Bowers, COO of Oral BioTech states: ” CazesCare is a dental membership plan for the 40% of people who do not have dental insurance. Dental disease is the #1 disease in the United States and changing that starts with patients having affordable access to preventive dental care.”
