NU Online News Service, Oct. 1, 2003, 2:20 p.m. EDT – Ameritas Life Insurance Corp., Lincoln, Neb., has introduced a dental discount program in Texas.

The program, which is not dental insurance, gives workers access to a network of dentists who have agreed to provide discounts on dental care. Any employer that can enroll at least two employees can sign up for the program. Employers can offer the program on its own or combine it with dental insurance plans, Ameritas says.

Ameritas hopes to make the program available in states other than Texas in the next few months.
