Cost Estimator Empowers Members to Save Money and Estimate Out-of-Pocket

Expenses

NEW YORK, July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Guardian dental plan members can now, with just a few clicks of a mouse, receive cost estimates on dental procedures -- before treatment -- and compare the financial impact of visiting an in-network versus out-of-network dentist.

The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America (Guardian), a leading provider of employee and voluntary benefits for small and mid-size companies, is offering the Cost Estimator tool to empower dental plan members to make better decisions to help improve their oral health and use their benefits wisely.

With most dental plans, members don't always have immediate access to dental procedure cost estimates, or the ability to quickly determine the price difference between in-network and out-of-network dentists.

"You really wouldn't know if you found a great deal. But shopping without a price tag is what many consumers face when they select their dental care provider. With our new Cost Estimator tool, employees can find out the approximate cost of services before they reach the dental office. This enhancement is in addition to the benefit of working with Guardian, a company that has one of the largest dental networks in the United States and one of the industry's broadest selections of dental, life, disability, voluntary and health insurance plan options for small to mid-size companies."

-- Provides members with a link to a
