e-Alert — COVID-19 – Delta Dental Offers Relief During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Background

Delta Dental is committed to providing their members with accurate, reliable information about the latest access to health care services in response to COVID-19, acknowledging the personal, financial and business challenges that are faced during this unprecedented time.

Summary

Delta Dental understands that with dental offices being closed for all visits, not including emergency procedures, its members have not been able to take full advantage of their dental benefits. Due to these circumstances, Delta Dental would like to provide comfort to their members by offering credits on a portion of premiums paid by insured employer groups.

On May 8, Delta Dental announced they will be offering all fully insured group health clients a 30% credit for premiums paid in April and May. These credits will automatically be applied to June premium invoices. Delta Dental has also been providing financial support to providers and communities across the Commonwealth during this time by:

  • Donated $200,000 to community groups in Boston, Worcester and in the Pioneer Valley to help provide much needed resources to some of the state’s most vulnerable residents.
  • Committed $2 million to the Massachusetts Dental Society Foundation’s COVID-19 Recovery Fund to help providers whose offices are shuttered.
