reduced fee plan

reduced fee plan,

n a program in which the fees established for some or all services are lower than those usually charged by dental professionals in the community. In some industrial plans, employers make lower fees possible by partially subsidizing the cost of providing care (e.g., furnishing rent-free facilities and paying costs of utilities). In welfare plans with limited funds, dental professionals may in effect subsidize the programs by accepting lower fees than they usually charge.
