What makes this population different?

  • Lack of availability to true private dental insurance

    • Less than two out of every ten older Americans are covered by private dental insurance (DHHS “Oral Health in America – 2003)

    • No more than 20% of Americans 75 years of age and over have dental insurance (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – 2005)

    • Oral Health America gave the nation on average a final grade of a “D” for private dental coverage in a special grading report on “The oral health of Older Americans” (Oral Health in America – September 2003)

Comparable dental programs l.jpg

    • Department of Defense contract for retired military and their eligible dependents, administered by Delta Dental

    • Very similar to AARP Dental Insurance Plan’s benefit structure with comprehensive coverage

Program Utilization

  • The first members to join the plan were the most costly members

  • Once the demand was met, the experience and needs were more favorable
