Submission to the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario on Standard of Practice - Virtual CareRelease Date: 08/11/2023 Staff Reference: Joan Weir
Life and health insurers play a key role in providing benefit plans to Ontarians, typically through the employer. In 2021, the industry paid out $4.2 billion in benefits while providing dental coverage to 9.2 million Ontarians. Our industry plays a significant role in ensuring dental claims are paid timely and appropriately, thereby assuring plan sustainability for the employer and employees. It is with this context in mind that we appreciate the opportunity to provide some comments regarding the proposed virtual care standard of practice.
