BENECARE IS AWARDED MASSACHUSETTS STATE CONTRACT

For Immediate Release

Philadelphia BeneCare Dental Plans is pleased to announce that its has been awarded the contract to administer the MassHealth Dental Program by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS). The MassHealth Dental Program provides access to comprehensive dental care to approximately 2.0 million residents in the Commonwealth.

“BeneCare is very excited to bring its outcomes-based dental care model to the residents of the Commonwealth,” states Lee Serota, President of BeneCare Dental Plans. “We’re looking forward to partnering with Massachusetts state officials, dentists, and other representatives of the oral health community in an effort to help improve MassHealth members’ oral health.”

Dental care is one of the many benefits available to children and adults who are enrolled in qualified MassHealth programs. Qualified MassHealth members have access to a host of comprehensive dental services, including check-ups, preventive services, cleanings, fluoride and dental sealant treatments, fillings, crowns, and root canals.

BeneCare’s outcomes-based model was originally developed in 1979 by a group of dental professionals to serve the commercial market. However, the model’s emphasis on improving oral health as a means of cost containment brought it to the attention of MassHealth. The BeneCare model has also achieved a successful track record of serving a similar demographic in another public sector program.

ABOUT MASSHEALTH

MassHealth provides health benefits and helps pay for them to qualifying children, families, seniors, and people with disabilities living in Massachusetts. The MassHealth dental program may offer benefits directly or help pay for all or part of your health insurance premiums. If you are a member, you may have access to doctor visits, dental, prescription drugs, behavioral health services, and other important health care services. 

ABOUT BENECARE DENTAL PLANS

In 1979, BeneCare reinvented the traditional insurer’s underwriting model by forming a partnership between dental professionals and a specialty administrator to underwrite group dental plans. This pioneering collaboration created an outcomes-based delivery model designed to increase access and lower cost by helping to improve oral health of the populations we serve.
