Posted August 29, 2019 08:17:20An insurance company in Australia has offered $250 of dental insurance for people who want it, according to The Australian.
The dental insurance policy was offered by Summit Dental Insurance, which is a subsidiary of American Dental and Related Insurances (ADRI), a company owned by American companies that provide dental services to Australian residents.
Summit’s offer is in response to the growing demand for dental insurance and as a result of the recent coronavirus pandemic.
While it is a relatively small company, it has a significant number of clients, with more than 40,000 enrolled in its dental insurance plan.
Sumpton’s offering is offered in four tiers, with $250 a year for a basic plan and $250 for a full-time, annual coverage.
In addition, it is offering a “bundled” option that covers dental and vision care.
Summits offer comes at a time when Australian dental insurance is becoming increasingly popular in Australia, and people are seeking affordable coverage.
The popularity of the policy is also being reflected in the demand for additional dental insurance options, as people are increasingly relying on health insurance to cover the costs of dental work, such as filling cavities and cleaning teeth.
In response to that demand, Australian dental insurers have been increasingly offering additional dental coverage options.
