Posted by Susan Donegan on Tue, Sep 08, 2015 @ 10:05 AM

MIAMI, September 8, 2015 – Darrin Hall, product architect of healthcare consulting company The Ignition Group, has been nominated to receive the NADP Gabryl Award. The National Association of Dental Plans (NADP) created the prestigious Gabryl Award in 1997 to honor outstanding leadership and long-term contributions by an NADP volunteer. It is the association’s highest honor. The volunteers of NADP help to fulfill the mission of the association to promote and advance the dental benefits industry and improve consumer access to affordable, quality dental care.

NADP Gabryl Award recipients are nominated by other volunteers and selected by the Board of Directors. Darrin was nominated by the Research Commission for his leadership and guidance in adapting NADP’s research reports to provide more depth and granularity in response to a wide range of Affordable Care Act influences on the dental marketplace. His work and engagement were essential to preparing the Research Commission, and NADP, to respond to the more intense data needs of the dental benefits industry. Darrin was an active member of the Research Commission from 2002 – 2013, and served as the chair from 2009 – 2013.

“I am honored to be nominated for the Gabryl Award and pleased that my contributions have helped the association. It is a pleasure to work with other volunteers from across the dental benefits industry,” Darrin said.

Darrin has worked in a variety of roles in nearly every functional area of the industry during his 20+ years with Cigna Dental and Oral Health Services prior to joining The Ignition Group.

The National Association of Dental Plans (NADP), a Texas nonprofit corporation with headquarters in Dallas, is the "representative and recognized resource of the dental benefits industry." NADP is the only national trade organization that includes the full spectrum of dental benefits companies operating in the United States. NADP's members provide Dental HMO, Dental PPO, Dental Indemnity, and Discount Dental products to more than 163 million Americans, approximately 90 percent of all Americans with dental benefits.
