From EMI President and Chief Executive Officer Steve Morrison:
We have some exciting news to share: EMI Health has acquired Total Dental Administrators (TDA)!
Some of you may be familiar with TDA as a friendly competitor in the dental marketplace. Now we are joining forces to become partners capable of offering a larger variety of products to more people faster than either company could accomplish on its own. This is a strategic acquisition that will help us fulfill our mission to provide the best possible benefits at the lowest cost.
Those of you familiar with TDA know that this is a great match. For those of you not familiar with TDA, they have a similar history to EMI Health’s. Originally founded as a small, regional dental company, TDA has grown into a national insurance benefits company, specializing in dental, life, disability, and vision. In addition to the PPO plans we are most accustomed to at EMI Health, TDA also offers DHMO (dental health maintenance organization) plans, which provides an exciting opportunity for expansion.
The purchase is pending approval of the Arizona and Utah Insurance Departments. We are thrilled about this partnership and what it means for our company, employees, members, and partners!
