Whew! It’s been a busy couple of days for Lisa digging up some details on the new Metlife/Connection Dental alliance. There’s some new pieces of information to share that we didn’t have before that we want to pass on.
We are seeing more and more impact with third party administrators. This move with Metlife is similar to United Concordia’s move under the Assurant/DHA fee schedule that is also transitioning. In this case if you are NOT participating with United Concordia directly then your United Concordia’s FFS network (Not ParNet) will fall under the Assurant/DHA fee schedule instead. It’s imperative that offfices understand not only who they are in-network with but how they are contracted. You can get paid very different rates sometimes on the same patients!
