Starting in April, important transitions will take effect for existing SDC groups as a result of integrating their data with their parent company’s systems. At renewal, groups will receive a new invoice from Medical Mutual and will be converted to Medical Mutual’s payment schedule and terms. Members will receive new ID cards with new group and member ID numbers.
At the end of December, groups renewing in April received an eblast with information on what to expect at renewal. A letter including the renewal and contract amendment was sent by certified mail to these groups this week.
Throughout the year, SDC will continue to send communications to existing groups starting approximately three months prior to their renewal. No changes will be made for groups until their renewal. New sold groups effective in April or later will be implemented with the new processes.
For more details, SDC put together this presentation just for brokers. In addition, the following information sheets are available for you to share with your existing groups:
- Groups enrolled in an SDC dental plan
- Groups enrolled in both SDC and Medical Mutual plans with different effective dates and/or funding types
- Groups enrolled in both SDC and Medical Mutual plans with the same effective date and funding type
