LIBERTY Dental Plan is Named Valley Health Plan’s Dental Benefits Partner for Healthcare Exchange

Irvine, CA – May 10, 2013 – LIBERTY Dental Plan (LIBERTY) is proud to announce that it has been selected to partner with Valley Health Pan (VHP) through Covered California’s healthcare exchange. VHP chose to award LIBERTY’s proposal to provide dental insurance products needed to meet the necessary Essential Health Benefit (EHB) requirements for Pediatric Children set forth by the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

LIBERTY’s President & CEO Dr. Amir Neshat stated his enthusiasm for the new partnership. “LIBERTY is looking forward to partnering with VHP in the spirit of collaboration that is fundamental to ensuring that this unprecedented undertaking is a success for Californians in 2014. With California’s selection to use the Healthy Families benefit plan as their dental benchmark to meet the EHB requirements, LIBERTY was a perfect candidate for this type of partnership due to our particular commitment to government programs that have served the Healthy Families population since 2007.”
