Aaron’s breakout session, “Dental Networks and Healthcare Exchanges," continued the exploration he began at the 2014 conference. Highlights of this year’s presentation were a deeper dive into the narrow network trend and discussion about the expanded standalone dental plan options available on the federal and state exchanges as well as ways to expand standalone dental enrollment using plan features already proven to reduce premiums in the commercial market.
