Through a partnership with Careington International Corporation, the National Association of Counties (NACo) has unveiled the NACo Dental Discount Program. This simple discount card can help the residents of NACo member counties save 5% to 50% on dental care, and 20% on orthodontics. The card is for individuals who are uninsured, but can also complement health insurance plans or work with health savings accounts, flexible spending accounts and health reimbursement arrangements.
The NACo Dental Discount Program is easy to use. County residents pay an annual or monthly fee for access to participating providers who have agreed to give services at discounted rates. For individuals, the fee is $59 per year or $6.95 per month. For families, the fee is $69 per year or $8.95 per month.
With the dental discount program, a county resident simply schedules an appointment with a participating dentist or specialist and presents the membership card to receive a discount at the time of service.
“Especially during these tough times, NACo is excited to introduce another substantial membership exclusive service with the NACo Dental Discount Program, which can assist county residents and county employees who do not have dental insurance,” said NACo President Lenny Eliason, commissioner, Athens County, Ohio. “This program is the latest of many valuable services that our association provides to our member counties.”
Important program highlights:
- everyone is accepted
- family membership includes all family members
- discounts are available at the time of service
- unlimited plan usage, with no administrative forms or waiting
- significant savings on dental cleanings, x-rays, braces, dentures, crowns, root canals and more
- discount dental plans are a great option for individuals or families on tight budgets, but who still place great importance on their family’s dental hygiene.
The plan can complement health insurance plans or work with health savings accounts, flexible spending accounts and health reimbursement arrangements. This plan is not insurance.
