Delta Dental of Missouri Commits $3 million to Reopening Relief Program for Network Dentists

 


I’m usually not a big fan of Delta Dental, but I like to give credit where credit is due… and this time they definitely deserve the positive PR.

I recently received the following email from Delta Dental of Missouri.  It seems that as a way to help dentistry, the company is providing a one time payment to providers.  The really interesting part is that there is no need to fill out an application or to pay the funds back.  It appears to be with no strings attached.

If that is indeed the case, I salute Delta Dental of Missouri.  This is a generous benefit to the profession as we struggle to come back from over 60 days of shutdown.  Here is the email:

Delta Dental of Missouri (DDMO) is committed to ensuring continuity of care in our communities. To help our network dental practices in Missouri and South Carolina with the costs of reopening, such as purchasing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), for the safety of our members, DDMO is providing a one-time payment based on the practice’s claims volume with DDMO. We committed a total of $3 million in Reopening Relief, to be distributed among our network practices in Missouri and South Carolina.

Checks will be mailed the week of June 8, 2020, to the practice’s primary office address. Dentists do not need to apply and no repayment is necessary.

The Reopening Relief Program is part of our comprehensive COVID-19 relief efforts in the communities we serve as we navigate this situation together.
