With the Supreme Court's ruling on the Affordable Care Act last week, much will be changing within the health care system, but much will also remain the same. Delta Dental remains committed to its mission of improving the oral health of all Iowans. We will continue to pursue this mission by providing affordable benefit plans and through our public benefit program which invests in oral health projects that focus on access to care, prevention, education and research.

With those fundamental cornerstones of Delta Dental of Iowa still in place, there are some items that will change.

The Court's ruling means that by the year 2014, individuals and employees of small businesses will have new opportunities to shop for medical and dental benefits on state and federally-facilitated exchanges. As the state's largest provider of dental benefits, Delta Dental will work with exchange developers to protect consumers' rights to keep their own dentist, to keep their current dental coverage and to comparatively shop for all of their dental benefit options.
