NADP, along with its industry partners, expressed strong opposition to Rhode Island’s S. 709, “An Act Related to Dental Insurance”, stating that the bill’s heavy handedness will result in higher premiums, less oral health access, and confusion. The bill legislates claims timeline and pre-authorization denial fees and would require unused benefits to be rolled over, which may affect future pricing of the product.  In its letter of opposition, NADP also stated that the bill’s annual report would be misleading for a consumer and would be difficult for insurers to calculate.
