The MDIS Difference

Jerri Wildhaber and Christy Diehl, two MDIS agents, sit down with Dr. Jon Copeland, MDA Treasurer and MDIS client, to discuss how MDIS is different from other agencies.

How MDIS Supports MDA With Non-Dues Revenue

Jerri Wildhaber and Dr. Jon Copeland discuss that MDIS has been an MDA for-profit subsidiary for more than 30 years, returning almost $5 Million to the Association. This non-dues revenue helps members direct by keeping dues down and providing funding for services and programs.

Open Enrollment Is Underway, Let MDIS Help

Open enrollment typically runs November 1 – December 15. Christy gives you some notes on the individual health insurance market.

Consider a Group Plan for Your Practice

Did you know it only takes two enrolled employees to form a group health insurance plan, depending on the type of plan? Christy can help you get started and remember, group health plans are a great way to attract and retain staff in the competitive dental workforce.

What To Do When You Reach Medicare Eligibility

You can enroll in Medicare three months before the month you turn 65, and coverage will go into effect the first day of the month in which you turn age 65. Christy will help you navigate all the things to be considered!

Employers Practice Liability Insurance

Lindsey reminds you EPLI is recommended for just about any business with employees, including dentists. At its core, it will protect you, as a business owner, in the case of employee related lawsuits that allege unfair or inappropriate acts.

What Would You Do If You Couldn’t Be Dentist?

Lindsey asks, “If you became ill or injured and could no longer practice dentistry, how would you supplement the loss of income you had been accustomed to?” If you don’t already have it, you probably need disability income protection.

Discounts Available On Your Malpractice Policy

Depending on the carrier, your discounts can vary slightly. MDIS is proud to work with MedPro, and Jerri tells you about the discounts they offer for new grads, residents and part-time employees, and for leave of absence, when you’re claim free and have taken risk management CE courses.
