TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Barriers are breaking in the insurance market between employers and quality dental plans optimized for employee needs.
Argus Dental Plan (www.argusdental.com) announces it will be among the first dental vendors to sell small business coverage through The Health Insurance Marketplace and Florida Health Choices (www.myfloridachoices.org), which is established by the Florida Legislature to provide improved access to affordable, quality health care for residents statewide.
Argus Dental Plan is part of the elite group of health and dental vendors chosen to provide coverage options through the website slated to launch this spring. The site will help educate employers and healthcare consumers in the value of cost and services in health plans.
“Making our dental plan options available through a centralized, consumer-driven site is right in line with our mission to promote easier access to affordable dental care,” said Nicholas Kavouklis DMD, founder and president of Argus Dental Plan, which provides a variety of quality-based Prepaid Dental Plans, Dental Discount Plans, Dental Saving Accounts (DSA), Dental PPO, and HMO.
Dental health planning is a valuable part of staying healthy, but it’s also a financial investment to help employers and individuals save money. The Argus Master Plan will be one of the more affordable options available via Florida Health Choices. With monthly group rates starting at $8.95 per individual, the master plan features no charge for comprehensive oral exams or cleanings, no pre-existing condition exclusions, no waiting periods, no deductibles, no claim forms, 25 to 50 percent discounts on basic and major dental services, along with access to a network of 4,500 provider locations.
“It’s a great value. Use it once and it pays for the entire year’s premium,” added Dr. Kavouklis.
Founded in 2007 by a Florida dentist, Argus Dental Plan provides dental benefits that offer value and quality to all members. Argus is licensed through the Florida Department of Insurance and is owned and operated by professionals with extensive experience with dental insurance and clinical dentistry. Through collaboration between consumers, dentists and insurance agents, Argus has developed flexible benefit plans to meet the specific needs of individuals, families, large and small employer groups, governmental agencies, and associations of all sizes.
