The Delta Dental Plans Association has weighed in on what DeCare Dental L.L.C. can and cannot do for Delta Dental of Minnesota.
The Delta Dental Plans Association, Oak Brook, Ill., is a group that represents 39 Delta Dental dental carriers.
WellPoint Inc., Indianapolis, recently acquired DeCare Dental, Eagan, Minn., a dental plan administration that has been running dental plans for several Delta Dental carriers, including WellPoint’s Empire Blue Cross unit.
DeCare still can provide some administrative services for Delta Dental of Minnesota, Eagan, but Delta Dental of Minnesota must handle other functions, according to the Delta Dental association.
