Searching for Group Discount for my employees

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: grathbun  (9 years ago)
I hate insurance companies. I want to find a dentist near me and negotiate a discount exclusively with him/her, for my 80 employees.

To the dentists reading this- how would you like to be approached with this proposal?

How should I approach the dentist with this idea? Phone call? Visit?
Would you be open to it? How valuable is 80 potential new customers? What kind of discounts might you agree to?

Thanks for any thoughts.

Hi Im Dr. Marchela.. I'm interested with your proposal, although my clinic is small but I'm planning to expand it. My clinic is in Makati, and if you're interested I'm willing to negotiate for discounts..

I agree that dental insurance is a rip-off and and stupid idea. It is very inefficient. At least 35% of the benefit dollar goes to claim administration.

Dental expenses are best paid via a FLEX spending account or Health Savings Account, which is easy for you to set up. Then your employees can price shop for the cheapest dentists, and get a lot done, or use the most expensive dentist, and get a little done. Who they choose is not your business.

Another way to do it is a Direct Reimbursement Plan, which most state dental societies can help you set up.

The fact of the matter is that you DO NOT want to put yourself in the position of shopping for their dentist. If you do, and problems arise with treatment, they may try to hold YOU liable.
