from Marketwire via SYS-CON
National dental benefits enrollment for 2009 decreased 5.7 percent compared to 2008 enrollment, according to the NADP/DDPA 2010 Dental Benefits Enrollment Report. This is the first decline in dental enrollment since NADP began reporting dental benefits enrollment data in 1994. At year-end 2009, approximately 166 million Americans were covered by some form of dental benefit through group or individual plans. This is about 10 million fewer than year-end 2008 and represents 54 percent of the population of the United States. By contrast, enrollment from 2006 through 2008 grew in line with population growth holding steady at 57 percent of the U.S. population.
