MCNA Dental announced today the appointment of the Honorable Rick Perry, former United States Secretary of Energy and former Governor of Texas, as Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors for MCNA Insurance Company, the country's largest insurer for Medicaid and CHIP dental programs with state agencies. He has also been appointed to the role of Chief Strategy Officer. He previously served on MCNA Insurance Company's Board of Directors.

The Honorable Mr. Perry will provide strategic vision for the expansion of MCNA Dental's national platform for dental managed care. He will play a leading role in governmental relations and provide key insight on healthcare reform, an issue he successfully addressed as the Governor of Texas.

"It gives me great joy to welcome Mr. Perry back to the MCNA family, and congratulate him on his service to our country. His tremendous diplomatic expertise and his experience spearheading Medicaid reform in Texas will enhance the capabilities of our leadership team and help to introduce a new era of innovation and growth benefitting our state partners, network providers, and the members we serve across the nation," said Dr. Jeffrey Feingold, Chief Executive Officer and President of MCNA Dental.

"I consider Dr. Jeffrey Feingold to be a close personal friend and have long admired his vision and leadership. Dr. Feingold is a passionate advocate for dental managed care and children's oral health. I am excited to rejoin the MCNA team and help to further its mission of providing high quality oral health care for the children of America," said the Honorable Mr. Perry.

With over 35 years of political and leadership experience, the Honorable Mr. Perry is a proven authority on healthcare reform, educational reform, and the economy and job creation. As Governor of Texas from 2000 to 2015, he led the way for accountability, transparency, and Medicaid reform to create a health care system that delivers quality dental and health care to children and families while maintaining fiscal efficiency for state government. Then Governor Perry's fiscal policies spurred the expansion of the Texas economy making the state the national leader in job creation and business growth.

Healthplex, Inc., announced today that, following the receipt of all required regulatory approvals, the company has been acquired by affiliates of MCNA Dental, the largest full-risk Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program dental benefits manager in the country. These combined affiliate companies will serve over 8 million members nationwide.

"The addition of Healthplex to our family of companies allows us to take the next step in our strategy for growth, complementing our national platform and expanding our commercial dental insurance products and other offerings. Healthplex shares in our mission of promoting accessible dental care for all. Our entire organization is enthusiastic about this opportunity to further transform oral health care in our communities by delivering enhanced value for the members, providers, Managed Care Organizations, and state partners we serve," said Glen Feingold, Chief Operating Officer for MCNA Dental.

MCNA Dental has a proven 27-year track record of facilitating high quality, cost effective oral healthcare services. MCNA serves beneficiaries in Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Iowa, Idaho, Arkansas, Nebraska, and Utah all through direct contracts with the state Medicaid agencies in each state. It was the first dental plan in the nation to receive full URAC Dental Plan Accreditation and has maintained NCQA accreditation in credentialing since 2011.

Founded in 1977 by Dr. Martin Kane and Dr. Stephen Cuchel, Healthplex is a New York-based dental insurance and management company with extensive experience in both government-funded and commercial dental programs. Healthplex has provided best-in-class dental services to government-funded programs through contracts with Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) since 1995.

The company currently serves 2.4 million members in New York State.

"The Healthplex team is looking forward to combining our regional expertise with MCNA's national presence while implementing proven best practices, making both companies stronger. I am personally excited to have the opportunity to continue to build upon Healthplex's 40-year story of growth with a company so closely aligned with our vision and our commitment to service in our community. Healthplex already manages the highest rated dental plans in our markets, and having the energy and enthusiasm of the Feingold family behind us will make Healthplex that much more formidable as a competitor in our existing and expansion markets," said Christopher Schmidt, President and CEO of Healthplex.

DLA Piper LLP (US) and Windels Marx Lane & Mittendorf LLP served as legal adviser to the selling shareholders of Healthplex, Inc., throughout the acquisition process. Akerman LLP and Greenberg Traurig LLP of New York served as legal advisers to the purchasers and MCNA Dental.
