Insurance reimbursements remained stagnant despite higher operating costs for dental practices -
According to an August poll by the American Dental Association’s Health Policy Institute, insurance reimbursements have not risen for the majority of dentists, despite rising costs. The Health Policy Institute surveyed about 1,200 dentists on their operating expenses and found they have reported increased costs for supplies, staff wages, PPE, equipment and rent to name a few. Nearly one-third of dentists (31%) indicated that PPE prices have increased by more than 20% and around 26% indicated that supplies and materials prices went up by at least 20% in the past year.
