Giving back to employers

COVID-19 is impacting everyone’s lives – including trips to the dentist. Most dental offices have been temporarily closed for non-emergency services. And Principal® understands employers and their employees have had limited use of their dental benefits.

Help for employers: 10% dental premium credit1
We’re giving a premium credit of 10% for the months of June-October 2020 to employers, based on the prior month's billed premium, who have a fully insured dental policy with us.2 These employers will be notified by email on May 7 and will see the credit on their group dental coverage bills.

We're working to make this compensation neutral. More information to come.  

Help for providers, too: $7 payment for PPE1
When employers and their employees go to any in-network dental provider from June-December 2020, we’ll automatically pay the provider $7 per member for in-office visits for personal protective equipment (PPE).3

This is an unprecedented time for all of us. Let me know if you have any questions or visit our COVID-19 advisor website for the latest information and resources.
