ADA Guidance on Coordination of Benefits

With the passage of the Affordable Care Act, more consumers are able to purchase dental plan coverage in their medical plans and additional questions have arisen with respect to coordination of benefits (COB).

In 2014, the ADA House of Delegates passed Resolution 63H, which calls for ADA agencies to develop guidance on COB as it can be very confusing for both patients and dentists.

The Council on Dental Benefit Program’s has drafted guidance and encourages member dentists and your appropriate staff to review the ADA Guidance on Coordination of Benefits.  Please let us know if this is helpful or if additional information is necessary to make it a better resource.
