Next Generation Coverage Provides Patients Access to Care and Improves Group Performance

Expanding access to coverage for patients is integral to removing barriers to dental treatment. In fact, the key to group practice performance lies in consistent patient engagement driven by access to dental coverage. Patients with coverage via dental insurance, discount plans, or membership plans visit 2-3X more often and accept 2X more care than uncovered patients. 

However, given the limitations, exclusions and nuances of traditional coverage options, group practices often miss an opportunity to offer a simpler, more affordable treatment option that removes barriers to dental treatment while creating a more consistent, reliable revenue stream for the business. The key is to offer coverage that gives patients affordable access to care while increasing group practice performance.

Membership plans make necessary preventive and treatment services accessible to uninsured patients and add a recurring revenue component to practice profit models. To ensure that a membership plan is sustainable and providing consistent value, dentists and DSOs can benefit from partnering with a membership plan platform to best serve the needs of their patients and their office teams. Membership plan software and support services simplify the initiative and position your offices for measurable success.

Innovative patient coverage can transform case acceptance and revenue growth

Data validating the ROI of membership plan patients reveals that patients enrolled in a Kleer-powered plan purchase twice as much treatment as uninsured patients. Since Kleer membership plans include preventive care, patients: 

  • Complete 2-3X more hygiene reappointments than uninsured patients.
  • Naturally accept more treatment (75% of dental treatment comes directly from hygiene).
  • Generate nearly 3X more production and revenue than uncovered patients.

With traditional coverage options like dental insurance and discount plans, patients are stuck dealing with enrollment processes that often come with delays in benefits, meaning more roadblocks to receiving necessary treatment. A more innovative coverage solution powered by Kleer simplifies enrollment and provides immediate access to care. 

  • Patients can sign up in your office or from any device. 
  • Only a patient's name, phone number, email address, and payment method are required to enroll.
  • The sign-up process takes less than 2 minutes and benefits start immediately, increasing the speed at which your patients get coverage and can receive care.
  • Once enrolled, patients can review benefits, manage payments, add family members, and contact your office from the Kleer Patient Portal.
