California Dental Association files legal action against Delta Dental of California

The California Dental Association filed a legal action in late December 2022 against Delta Dental of California challenging Delta’s 2023 adjustments to Premier and PPO provider agreements in California.

The “swift and severe” adjustments, effective Jan. 1, include significant fee reductions for many California dentists, increased administrative burdens and diminished value of benefit plans, according to the complaint.

CDA alleges in the Superior Court of California that the board of directors of Delta Dental violated its fiduciary duties by, among other things, failing to conduct appropriate analysis of the need for and impact of the contract changes to Delta Dental’s provider networks and patients.
