Ameritas Offers Discount Dental Service Lineup

October 1, 2003 ( - Ameritas Group wants benefits managers to know that its new Discount Dental program is not insurance.

Rather, said Ameritas Group in a news release, the program gives employees access to a dental provider network in order to get discounted services – including for orthodontia and cosmetic procedures – for members and dependents. There is a small monthly fee to join, the Lincoln, Nebraska-based company said.

The only dental services excluded are those already discounted or covered under another plan. Available to any size group with at least two participants, the program will initially be marketed in Texas and then expand to additional states in the next few months, the announcement said.
