Enrollment Report Reveals Growth in 2021 Dental Benefits Market
Nearly 280 million Americans, 85% of the population, were covered by some form of dental benefit, according to the NADP 2022 Dental Benefits Report: Enrollment. Coverage was provided through employer-sponsored group plans or other group or individual plans, including public benefits.
The Enrollment Report is the cornerstone of the NADP research suite. It covers in-force enrollment and was recently published in the NADP Knowledge Center. It is free to dental plan members and offered at member pricing to the additional membership categories.
This report provides information about the prevalence of dental benefits in the population of the United States. In addition, data is presented on product types, including enrollment in private DHMO plans, DEPO/DINO plans, DPPO plans, Dental Indemnity plans, Dental Savings/Discount Dental Plans, and publicly funded plans, including Medicaid, CHIP, and Medicare Advantage plans at the national and state level. NADP has been collecting this information since 1994 and the findings in this report draw on this history.
