Delta Dental settlement info online

Dentists seeking information regarding CDA’s amended settlement agreement with Delta Dental can find all related information posted at DeltaDentalofCaliforniaSettlement.com.

Under the settlement agreement, Delta Dental must pay $65 million to Premier Providers whose rates were impacted by an inflationary guard. Not every Premier Provider had his or her fees reduced by this procedure, but those who did will receive some proportionate reimbursement.

A hearing on final approval of the agreement is scheduled for late April in the San Francisco Superior Court.
