Members like you are switching to GDIS
Christy Biddy, your Medical Benefits Coordinator, talks with members around the state about their insurance needs every day. "I've been hearing from a lot of dentists who are losing their plans because of insurers leaving the exchange, and need to find new coverage," she says. Here are a few examples:
- Loss of plan: One member and his wife shared that in 2015, they left GDA's group coverage for a new plan, and a year later it was cancelled. They found a new provider, and again - one year later, their plan was cancelled.
- Mid-year cancellations: This fall, another member learned a plan was cancelled on her birthday, before its annual renewal.
- Health history coverage limitations: Still another GDA member was denied coverage for a surgery in 2015 due to health history disclosures - something our plans don't require.
- Impersonal lack of communication: One member's family wasn't even informed about a plan cancellation - they found out as they were at a doctor's appointment for their child.
But, we're also hearing good news:
At the recent EDDS Legislative Reception, one member dentist told Christy GDA had saved him money on his health plan, which he joined this year.
Each of these members are considering GDA health plans or have switched because we can offer stability and service they can't find in their current individual plans.
