Conway, South Carolina - Horry County announced that a new dental discount card program is now available for county residents. The program is administered by Careington International Corporation in partnership with the National Association of Counties (NACo).
The NACo Dental Discount Card Program, a NACo member benefit program, was designed to help uninsured and underinsured county residents save money on their dental service expenses.
Through a partnership with Careington International Corporation, this simple discount card can help residents save an average of 20 to 50 percent on their dental care services, and 20 percent on orthodontic services. This affordable plan starts at $6.95 per month and $59 per year for individuals.
"The card is easy to use and will save people money," said Lisa Bourcier, Public Information Officer. "Cardholders simply schedule an appointment with a participating dentist or specialist and present their card to receive a discount at the time of service. There are no forms to complete and everyone in the household is eligible to receive a discount." With this discount card, residents of NACo-member counties will experience significant savings on dental cleanings, x-rays, braces, dentures, crowns, root canals and more.
"Especially during these tough times, NACo is pleased to provide this discount dental program to our member counties," said NACo President Valerie Brown, supervisor, Sonoma County, Calif. "This program is the latest of many valuable benefits that our association provides to our member counties."
The NACo Dental Discount Card Program is designed to complement health insurance plans or work in conjunction with health savings accounts, flexible spending accounts and health reimbursement arrangements. It is also a cost-effective way for younger retirees to meet their dental needs.
Cards are available at all Horry County Memorial Library locations, the Horry County Veterans Office, the Horry County Public Information Booth in the Horry County Government & Justice Center, and all Treasurer Offices. Cards are also available at all five local health departments throughout Horry County. More information about the NACo Dental Discount Card Program is available at: www.nacodentalprogram.com.
