Delta Dental of New Jersey, Inc. (DDNJ) and Delta Dental of Connecticut, Inc. (DDCT) recently announced the launch of its Dentist Support Program to provide its network dentists in New Jersey and Connecticut with much-needed financial relief amounting to $13 million during the COVID-19 pandemic. The program consists of two components – the Support for PPE Supplies Program and the Advance Payment Program (APP).
The Support for PPE Supplies Program will assist New Jersey and Connecticut Delta Dental participating network dental offices in purchasing PPE supplies, some of which have not customarily been used in dental practices. Eligible dentists will receive $10 per DDNJ- or DDCT-patient visit over a two-month period. Network dentists who are dental practice owners can apply for a no-interest advance on their 2020 claims through the APP if they are licensed and practicing in New Jersey and Connecticut, in good standing and have been participating with DDNJ or DDCT since 2019. Eligible dentists who apply and are approved for the APP can receive an advanced payment representing 50 percent of their average monthly 2019 payments, not exceeding $25,000 per applicant. DDNJ and DDCT will gradually recoup the payment advance later in the year once dental offices resume normal operations.
In addition, prior to the COVID-19 forcing closure of businesses in New Jersey, Delta Dental of New Jersey and its employees were busy supporting the community. In January and February, the company and its employees participated in American Heart Month, Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Give Kids a Smile Day, a national day of free dental services for children aged 12 and under. Then in late February, Delta Dental of New Jersey, Rutgers School of Dental Medicine and Hudson County Dental Society collectively hosted Children’s Dental Health Awareness Day at Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, an oral health-themed, carnival-style event at which children and their families learned about why healthy smiles and good oral health go hand in hand.
