Premier Access is a Managed Care Organization, meaning we have an agreement with the state of Utah to manage dental benefits
for Utah Medicaid and CHIP members. In 2013, Guardian purchased Premier Access. Since Guardian was new to the government
dental market at this time, they purchased Avesis in 2015, a nationwide expert in government dental, vision and hearing
plan administration. Currently, Premier Access utilizes Avesis as a 3rd party administrator for Utah Medicaid and CHIP. While
working with us, you may see a combination of Premier Access, Avesis and Guardian logos. Think of Premier Access and Avesis
as siblings, and Guardian as their parent. Together, we work to provide the best service and care to our Utah Medicaid and
CHIP providers and members.
