Business Owners Policy and Additional Essential Coverages

A business insurance package is an affordable way to obtain property and liability insurance together. Dyste Williams has a special package designed for dental practices that can be tailored to your unique needs. Depending on the size and nature of your practice, you may also need additional insurance coverage such as an umbrella liability policy, business auto, cyber liability and data breach, employment practices or fiduciary liability.

Workers Compensation

We offer an affordable and innovative workers comp policy for dental practices that integrates early intervention, advanced claim and medical technology, and a return-to-work strategy.

Employee Benefits: Life & Health

Dyste Williams can present many options for the protection and well-being of your practice employees.

Health and other Personal Insurance Coverage

Dentists need high quality personal insurance coverage to protect substantial assets and future success. Dyste Williams provides individuals and families with the most comprehensive insurance coverage available, at competitive prices.

Tax-Advantaged Employee Benefits

More >Less >

TASC is a national third-party benefits administrator that offers employee benefit programs that come with an Audit Guarantee. TASC’s FlexSystem Flexible Spending Arrangement (FSA) plans allow employees to pay for certain dental and medical expenses on a pre-tax basis. By paying for these expenses before being taxed, employees lower their taxable income, pay less in taxes and increase their take-home pay. The average employee saves thousands of dollars each year.

Even if you are an employer who does not sponsor a group health plan, you can still provide a tax-free benefit that allows you and your employees to contribute to individual insurance premiums and out-of-pocket medical expenses with the FlexSystem Non-Employer Sponsored Premium (NESP) and Non-Excepted Flexible Spending Arrangement (NEFSA). The employer saves an average of $300 per participating employee on payroll taxes each year.

To learn more visit www.tasconline.com, e-mail microbusiness@tasconline.com or call TASC at 888-595-2261, ext. 17732. Be sure to mention the discount code: MNDA.

Testimonials

We are excited to work with MDA endorsed vendors; BestCard and Dyste Williams. Having the support from the MDA saved me both time and money when I was working on starting up my business.

-Sarah Magnuson, D.D.S.

We love the Accelerator and Profit Recovery (from Transworld)… all for a Flat Fee. All of our money comes back to us. We started receiving money in the very first week, just like you said we would. We like the control, especially when being in a smaller town. Patient relationships are important.
