Health insurance options that fit your needs

As an exclusive benefit to ODA members and their staff, ODASC provides a one-stop health insurance solution that allows individuals the ability to control and manage benefits specific to their current needs.

Ohio Dental Association Wellness Trust

ODASC is excited to announce a new health insurance option for ODA members and their staffs – the Ohio Dental Association Wellness Trust. The new plan is a self-insured plan that will allow participants to avoid some of the regulations and requirements of the Affordable Care Act. The plan will begin March 1, 2015, and participants in a self-insured plan typically see a 10 percent savings compared to marketplace plans.

The ODA Wellness Trust will be an employer plan, which means offices that enroll in the plan will be required to offer insurance to all full-time employees (defined as those employees working 25-30 hours or more per week). No employer contribution is required. Employees are allowed to decline the coverage by completing a waiver form. While no employer contribution is required, if an employer chooses to make a contribution it must be on a non-discrimination basis.

The ODA Wellness Trust will have the same carrier (Medical Mutual of Ohio), the same networks of providers and hospitals, the same prescription coverage and same plans as the ODA's current health insurance plan, the Dentists' Choice Health Care Plan (DCHCP).
