WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Warner Pacific (the “Company”), a leading employee benefits–focused General Agency with locations in California, Colorado, and Texas, announced today the acquisition of Beta Health Association’s (“Beta Health”) commercial dental health platform. Beta Health was a provider of group voluntary and contributory dental, vision, life, and disability products in Colorado prior to the acquisition. This is the Company’s first acquisition since entering into a strategic partnership with private equity firm Lovell Minnick Partners in January 2022. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Over the past 26 years, Beta Health has expanded from its singular product line, the Alpha Dental Plan, to offer a wide variety of dental and vision plans through partnerships with national carriers. The acquisition of Beta Health’s commercial dental health platform will expand Warner Pacific’s product offerings and industry partnerships while strengthening the Company’s presence in the West and adding to its operational and sales expertise in ancillary products. With these partnerships, customers can choose dual product offerings, pairing a Beta Health dental savings plan with dental plans from national carriers.
“Over the years, we’ve seen firsthand the value that Beta Health’s dental health platform can provide through its longstanding industry relationships,” said John Nelson, co-CEO of Warner Pacific. “By combining Warner Pacific’s complementary marketing capabilities with Beta Health’s preexisting commercialized platform, we’re confident that we can create even greater value for the industry we serve.”
“This acquisition is a testament to our longtime relationship with Beta Health and their unique ability to forge strong partnerships with national carriers,” added Dave Nelson, co-CEO of Warner Pacific. “By building on their success in the commercial dental health space, we can now pair our product offerings with a Beta Health dental savings plan, giving brokers even greater savings for their clients.”
“We’ve watched Warner Pacific’s growth for many years and have known them to not only be deeply experienced leaders in the employee benefits space but a company whose values align with our own,” said Mark Thompson, president of Beta Health. “We’re excited to expand our relationship with Warner Pacific and focus on growing our dental savings plan membership in Colorado, California, and Texas.”
