1. Take a long view on short-term discounts.
Some medical plan providers will offer an initial discount to wrap your dental benefits into your medical plan. While this may seem like a good idea, it has its drawbacks. You wouldn’t ask your CPA to manage your outsourced IT because that’s not her area of specialty. So why entrust your dental plan to a medical plan carrier? Also changes to your medical plan could impact your dental benefits—causing added stress and unnecessary work.
The small biz smart move: Find a standalone, best-in-class dental plan for your small business. You’ll have a safeguard against unnecessary disruption, and your employees get the advantage of having comprehensive benefits from a trusted dental expert.
