Montana Dental Association
If you already are a member with user name and password, click here.
The Montana Dental Association provides a wide range of member services, one of the more valued is the group medical plan.
The medical plan is called the Montana Dental Association Group Benefits Trust. The trust is self-insured, managed by six trustees. The claims administrator is Employee Benefit Management Services, Inc. located in Billings, Montana.
As of January 1, 2012, the trust provides group medical insurance to over 150 dental offices and to over 250 dentists and employees; the Trust offers four different benefit options - each uniquely designed to provide coverage and benefits that the membership has indicated best meets the needs of the dental profession. There are two high deductible health plans which are health savings account (HSA) eligible. The Trust has a reserve fund that helps keep the annual premium increases much lower than other options. A second tool used by the Trust is catastrophic claims reinsurance. This limits the claims losses charged to the plan, also functioning as a premium leveling mechanism.
All of the benefit designs provide "first dollar" preventive benefits which means 100% coverage for well-child care, mammograms, colonoscopies, immunizations and yearly exams to name a few. All plans also provide a 100% paid annual eye exam, through VSP. You can get complete information and request a quote by calling our insurance consultant, Mountain West Benefit Solutions at-1-877-343-1060 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Professional Liability & Dental Practice Package Insurance
Payne Financial Group / Hoiness LaBar Insurance
& Cincinnati Insurance Company
1 (800) 877-0115 or (406) 238-1910
Professional Liability and Dental Practice Protection:
The MDA endorses Hoiness LaBar Insurance, a member of The Payne Financial Group and their trusted partner carrier The Cincinnati Insurance Company. It is through this endorsement which MDA members can purchase both Professional Liability and comprehensive Practice coverage. Hoiness LaBar Insurance has been the endorsed agent for the MDA for over 30 years. Over 300 practicing dentists in Montana are currently insured with Cincinnati Insurance through PFG. We have both local agents and local adjusters to provide the best service possible to the MDA members.
Cincinnati Insurance and Occurrence vs. Claims-Made coverage:
Cincinnati Insurance Company has an AM Best Rating of A+ VX, and was recently recognized by Forbes magazine as The Most Trustworthy Company for large-cap, publicly traded companies in the US. Forbes evaluated over 8,000 companies in all industries, not just insurance companies, and they chose Cincinnati as the most Trustworthy.
Cincinnati Insurance has been insuring dentists for over 50 years and they are one of the largest writers of dentists in the country. They have always used the Occurrence form. When the professional liability crises hit, all carriers writing professional liability either switched to the more limited Claims-Made form, or quit writing professional liability all together. Not Cincinnati, they continued to offer the broader Occurrence form to their clients. They always have, and always will, provide their clients the broadest coverage possible.
