Last-Chance Health Insurance Open House/Workshop

Speaker: MDA Insurance
Location: MDA Headquarters, Okemos
Time: 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Do you get a quarterly health insurance premium statement from MDA Insurance? If you do, your health insurance ends Dec. 31. If you have not decided what to do for health coverage in 2015, come to this open house. We will be here from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. to help you enroll in the MDA Health Plan, a Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan small group plan, an individual BCBSM plan or a subsidized health plan on the federal online Marketplace.

We will help you get across the finish line by the Dec. 15 open enrollment deadline, but you have to come here informed and prepared to act. Here’s what you need to do to be ready to receive our help.

For the MDA Health Plan:

  • Submit your census and business rules and participation form no later than Dec. 5 to allow us to have a quote prepared for you Dec. 12. Then be ready to make a decision.
  • Have an MDA Health Plan proposal in hand; or
  • Bring your enrollment paperwork if you have already received it and need help completing it.

For a BCBSM group plan:

  • Have the names and birthdates of everyone eligible to participate. Employees must work at least 30 hours per week. A BCBSM group plan must have at least one participant who is a W-2 employee and who is not a family member of the business owner.

For an individual BCBSM plan:

  • Provide the names and birthdates of everyone in your family who needs coverage.

For a subsidized health plan:

  • Have the names, addresses, birthdates and 2015 estimated household income for subscribers, and have access to an email account (smartphone or tablet).

Assistance is on first-come, first-served basis. All our agents with be on hand to help you in plan selection and enrollment. Please allow ample time to meet with an agent if you wish to do so. There may be a wait. Refreshments will be available all day.

To help us prepare to meet your needs, please register for this workshop and indicate the type of insurance that you need assistance with.

Cocktails & Connections

Discovering the Leader Within:
An MDA Evening for Women Dentists

Speaker: Jodi Schafer, SPHR
Time: 6 – 8 p.m.
Locations: Various (see list below)
Fee: $35/person
CE Credits: 1

The Michigan Dental Association is holding five gatherings mixing social interaction with continuing education through discussion and consultation with Jodi Schafer, SPHR, a well-known human resources expert.

The gatherings will be held from 6-8 p.m. at a cost of $35/person, which includes food, drinks, networking and one credit of continuing education. Members and nonmembers are invited to attend.

Dental school prepared you to be a strong clinician, but did it train you to be a leader? As Simon Sinek says, “There are leaders and there are those who lead.” People follow leaders because they WANT to … they follow bosses because they HAVE to. Despite our best efforts, we often struggle to see the difference between bossing and leading. Failure to recognize that distinction can spell disaster for your practice in the form of employee turnover, patient dissatisfaction, frustrated staff and increased stress levels.


Join with your sisters in dentistry to rediscover the true meaning of leadership and learn how to wield influence rather than control. Share in the experiences of others and get in touch with what really matters to you. Only then you can hope to connect and SOAR!
