Dental Insurance

Over the past five years, the US Dental Insurance industry has been strained by rising healthcare expenditures, economic distress and weakening employer commitment to providing coverage. During the period, a consistent increase in healthcare expenditure (i.e. medical-cost inflation) has driven revenue growth despite fewer policy enrollments. Still, these cost increases and a poor economic climate put pressure on operators' profit margins. Industry revenue growth is expected to accelerate over the coming years due in part to increasing US employment, slow growth in dental-care costs and plan premiums and rising per capita disposable income.

This industry underwrites (i.e. assuming the risk and assigning premiums) dental insurance policies. Dental insurance helps cover the costs of dental care, ranging from basic preventative coverage to major dental work, depending on the type and scope of insurance plan. Orthodontics coverage may be included in dental insurance plans, but reinsurance of dental policies is not included in this industry.
