Industry Snapshot

Sponsored Research Program

NADP has conducted its Industry Snapshots program as a free service to members since 2006. Typically, Industry Snapshots are brief, single topic surveys on issues affecting the dental benefits industry. In concordance with NADP’s Strategic Plan, and to build the library of knowledge about and for the industry, beginning this year, the Industry Snapshot program will provide an opportunity for members and non-members to initiate and sponsor survey research among NADP dental plan members. Following is an outline of how the new Industry Snapshot program will work.

What’s Included for Sponsors:

NADP will solicit a commitment to participate in the survey from targeted member companies. A minimum threshold of commitment to participate must be reached in order to proceed with the study (At least 10 plans and 20% of the market).

Included in each survey are a few standard questions/data points including:

  • Product offerings of respondents: (DHMO, DPPO, Indemnity, Discount)
  • Total enrollment of all respondents by product type
  • Estimated representation of the market as a percentage of enrollment
  • Title/job function of respondent (if applicable)

Final product will include an Executive Summary, Detailed Findings, modifiable tables and charts. Sponsoring company will have input into the final product. No individual response (identified or redacted) will be available unless ALL participating companies consent.

At the Snapshot Sponsor’s discretion, acknowledgement will be made in the Executive Summary and Detailed Findings Report

What's Included for Survey Respondents:

  • Respondents will receive the final Executive Summary and Detailed Findings at no additional charge no sooner than 30 days after the report is delivered to the Snapshot Sponsor.
  • NADP will make the Executive Summary and Detailed Findings Report available for sale to members and non-members no sooner than 90 days after the report is delivered to the Snapshot Sponsor.
