ADA Guidance on Coordination of Benefits

With the passage of the Affordable Care Act, more consumers are able to purchase dental plan coverage in their medical plans creating questions with respect to coordination of benefits (COB). The ADA has created guidelines to help member dentists and their staff coordinate the dental benefits of their patients.  The ADA's guidelines are available as a members-only resource on the Center for Professional Success website at Success.ADA.org/COB.
