NACo Dental Discount Program

National Association of Counties (NACo) logo
The Linn County Board of Supervisors has partnered with the National Association of Counties (NACo) and Careington International Corporation to offer Linn County residents a comprehensive dental discount program that could help residents save 5-50% on dental care from participating dental care providers. The range of discounts will vary depending on the type of provider and service.

The NACo Dental Discount Card Program is designed to help uninsured and under-insured county residents save money on their dental service expenses. The program complements health insurance plans and works in conjunction with health savings accounts, flexible spending accounts, and health reimbursement arrangements. However, this program is not insurance. Linn County is able to provide this benefit to residents thanks to Linn County’s membership in the National Association of Counties. The dental discount program is available to all Linn County residents.
