Universal Benefit Plans and Universal Dental Plan Announce Joint Outreach Initiative to Aid Massachusetts Nonprofits
Date:1/6/2009

BOSTON, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Benefit Plans and subsidiary company Universal Dental Plan newly launched an outreach partnership to provide Massachusetts nonprofits with a cost-effective, convenient alternative to dental insurance in exchange for Universal Benefit Plans administering their employee benefits as Broker of Record. Nonprofit employees in Massachusetts will now have access to Universal Dental Plan's network of dentists in 160 unique locations and guaranteed rate discounts of 20-50% on all procedures. Employers will find peace of mind in having access to Universal Benefit Plans' time and cost saving human resources and benefits management technology, The HR in a Box. Employees get peace of mind knowing they have 24/7 access to all of their benefit information from one secure location using only one password.

The nonprofit sector employs roughly 11 million people and many non-profits in today's economic climate face the difficult question, "Cut staff or cut benefits?" When benefits are cut, it's often voluntary benefits and dental insurance that are the first to go. Non-profit employees who do not have a group dental plan will benefit immensely from Universal Dental Plan's affordable local dental care.

Massachusetts nonprofits offering Universal Dental Plan will help their employees save money and curtail the number of employee absences resulting from dental emergencies. According to a US Surgeon General report, 168 million work hours are lost each year due to dental conditions and over 64 billion dollars are spent annually on dental care. Affordable access to cost-saving preventative dental care will also have a positive impact on employees' health since many early symptoms of acute systemic illnesses are present in the mouth. Periodontal disease heightens the risk of both heart attack and stroke and regular dental examinations can facilitate early detection of conditions such as heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes and cancer.
