Guardian has heard directly from many of you about how significantly the pandemic has impacted employers and their members’ ability to receive dental care.
Guardian's new Guardian Pandemic Support Program* can help your clients manage costs and provide employees with affordable, uninterrupted access to dental care as practices reopen for elective treatments. This new program includes:
- A choice of a one-month premium credit for new and in-force, fully-insured dental and vision plans or an extended rate guarantee. Commissions would be based on premiums received.
- Existing dental and vision customers may choose a two-year rate guarantee on both products.
- New customers may choose a two-year rate guarantee for dental and a two- or three-year rate guarantee for vision.
- Guardian has developed strategic partnerships with many Ben Admin and Third-Party Administrators to provide additional services, such as billing to mutual clients. They will collaborate with each partner to develop business processes to help support this program.
- Enhancing of frequency limits on dental cleanings, exams, and fluoride treatments (if applicable) to a minimum of two per calendar year beginning July 1, 2020 through December 31, 2021.
- Dental Maximum Rollover enhancements, including removal of the claim requirement in order to roll over funds for 2020, and $100 added to each member’s Maximum Rollover Account beginning January 1, 2021. Administrative Services Only (ASO) customers should contact their Guardian Service Representative to participate in this enhancement.
