Arlington, Va. – Dominion National, a leading dental insurer and administrator of dental and vision benefits headquartered in Arlington, Va., announced that Mike Davis, President, and Jeff Schwab, Vice President of Marketing, will present teledentistry trends, challenges and opportunities at the Group Underwriters Association of America (GUAA) annual conference on May 20 in Charleston, S.C.
Davis and Schwab will share teledentistry trends that can impact group insurance clients, including enhancements to care delivery that can result in cost-effective solutions for insurers and customers. According to a Willis Towers Watson study, telemedicine has the potential to save U.S. employers up to $6 billion annually in healthcare costs.1
“Teledentistry can provide significant cost savings for customers, employers, dentists and insurers. It’s a win-win opportunity and underwriters have been very receptive to innovative care delivery models that help contain costs,” said Davis. “It’s particularly evident now that the majority of employers are deciding to offer telemedicine benefits.”
The conference brings together industry professionals to actively promote the study, analysis and discussion of all matters relating to the underwriting of group insurance products. For more information about the GUAA annual conference, please visit guaa.com.
