Research Report

The Enrollment Report provides information about the prevalence of dental benefits in the population of the United States. 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.

This year’s report finds

  • an increase in enrollment in dental plans, including significant gains in enrollment in commercially available dental plans and in dental benefits associated with Medicare Advantage plans.
  • Nearly half of all commercial dental enrollment is in self-funded plans, often not regulated by states.

While national and state information is provided in this report, no company-specific data is reported. Company-specific information and states of operation can be found in NADP’s Member Directory.
