How many people don’t have insurance?
According to the American Dental Association, 10.3 percent of children aged 2-18 don’t have dental insurance. It also states that 33.6 percent of adults aged 19-64 don’t either. That is an incredibly high number of Americans that have no dental coverage, and therefore are probably not going to get their teeth checked bi-annually, much less attending to dental emergencies or surgical needs that come up.
Additionally, according to the National Association of Dental Plans, in 2016 the dentally uninsured rate increased to nearly four times the medically uninsured rate within the first quarter of the year. This is a number that is projected to continue, leaving more Americans dentally uninsured than.
Having an In-House Membership Plan is attractive to uninsured patients.
Having an In-House Membership Plan is highly attractive to the uninsured. Lack of coverage creates a barrier monetarily for many Americans, as it means they have to pay out of pocket not only for regular cleanings, but also x-rays, surgeries, and more.
In-House Membership Plans make these procedures affordable to anyone, even without coverage. If you advertise that you have one, it will draw in a whole new set of patients that you were unable to reach previously.
