Careington International Corporation announced on Aug. 1 a partnership with Wellpoint Federal and Quality, Timeliness, & Customer Service Medical Group to support the Defense Health Agency's Reserve Health Readiness Program.

Together, QTC Medical Group and Wellpoint Federal are committed to providing medical and dental readiness support for those preparing to defend the nation.

Wellpoint Federal has selected the Careington Care PPO network to grant reservists access to in-clinic dental care through the RHRP. Careington is a national leader in the health and wellness benefits space and has built extensive networks that serve more than 30 million members across all industry-best companies, brands, products and services. 

Careington owns and operates some of the largest discount and PPO dental networks throughout the U.S., offering significant savings on dental care through quality, fully credentialed dentists and specialists.    

In the news release, Careington CEO Stewart Sweda said that the company recognizes "he bravery of men and women who defend our nation, and it is a privilege be a part of the programs providing them with support in preparation for their service."
