A new initiative introduced today is designed to help dental offices make facility and safety upgrades to safely reopen. The Delta Dental Reopening Support Payment will provide $10 for each claim submitted by dentists participating in the Premier, PPO, and Hawki networks for Delta Dental of Iowa members. They are working to finalize payment for DWP members. Out-of-Network providers are not eligible to receive this payment.
The support payment will:
- Apply to services members receive between May 1 and August 31, 2020.
- Apply to all claims and there is no need to submit separate claims for payment.
- Begin making payments around June 15.
Please note, billing patients for infection control or PPE using the D1999 code is not a billable charge to the member or Delta Dental per the provider contract and member benefit certificates.
