MDS Statement on Vaping Ban
Dental Practice Insights
Deciding to terminate a relationship with an insurance company is a difficult decision. If you decide to move forward with terminating network participation, it is important that you inform your patients of your reasons for this decision. Most insurance providers send out letters to your patients suggesting the patient changes to a "network dentist" so don't let them have the last word.
The MDS Dental Practice and Benefits Committee recommends that you send a letter to your corresponding patient base informing them that you are terminating participation, explain your decision, what the change will mean, and the high value you place on the dentist-patient relationship.
