Carnation Dental - Direct Reimbursement Plan

Carnation Dental is a new, cost-effective way for employers to offer dental benefits to their employees. It is a direct reimbursement plan unique to Ohio and supported by the Ohio Dental Association.

Carnation Dental allows employers to design a plan that will work best for everyone, and employees are free to choose the best care available because there are no limitations to the plan.

Funds allocated for dental care go toward just that — unlike typical indemnity plans with 32 percent of total employer costs going toward overhead and administration expenses.
