  • USI New England

As a convenience for Bar Association, members, USI New England will act as a liaison between Blue Cross/Delta Dental and Bar members as an alternative to direct Bar member contact with Blue Cross/Delta Dental. Bar members' insurance rates are determined by Blue Cross/Delta Dental and not by USI New England. USI is only the acting agent on behalf of Blue Cross/Delta Dental. There are no savings in Blue Cross/Delta Dental payment rates by going through USI New England. These rates are based on the demographics of the law office and/or the individual attorney applying for coverage. A member may contact Blue Cross/Delta Dental directly without going through USI New England, and the premium will be exactly the same. USI New England is contracted to provide Rhode Island Bar members enrollment, billing service, insurance advice and to assist Rhode Island Bar members with other health/dental and benefits insurance alternatives.
