Five reasons why your practice may consider switching plan provider


During 2017, an increasing number of practices successfully transferred their existing payment plan patients with another plan provider to a practice-branded solution with Patient Plan Direct (PPD), cumulatively saving hundreds of thousands of pounds in costs.

This trend continues in 2018.

PPD asked the practices that made this transition in 2017 to explain their primary reasons for making the move, which are shared below.

Do any of these reasons resonate with you and your practice?

Here are the five primary reasons practices that made the move to PPD from their previous plan provider in 2017 expressed…

  1. Huge Cost Savings – Increasing Practice Profits

PPD’s administration fee (only £1.28 per patient per month, including Worldwide Dental A&E Cover) can prove to be up to over 65% lower cost than other plan providers administration charges.

  1. Their previous plan providers branding

Some practices commented they were left feeling confused about their previous providers branding / re-branding, opting to make the move to not only cut costs, but take control of their own payment plans and patient relationships in the future.

  1. A First-Class Worldwide Dental A&E Cover for Patients

(Included in PPD’s £1.28 admin fee)

The Worldwide Dental A&E cover* for patients included with PPD’s service includes cover for the placement, repair or replacement of implants following an accident at no additional cost to patients (This is only an option with some other providers at an additional cost to patients).

PPD’s cover also includes:

  • Treatment following an accident
  • Emergency treatment whilst away from home
  • Emergency out of hours call out costs
  • Mouth Cancer diagnosis, fixed benefit payment of £2,500
  • Contribution towards plan costs following redundancy
