(1) Any employer, group, or organization that pays or contributes to the premium of a group health insurance plan or dental service plan corporation which provides dental coverage only upon the condition that services be rendered by an exclusive list of dentists or groups of dentists shall provide an alternative to enable the insured to have a free choice of dentist.
