As of March 18, 2020 Governor Beshear issued an executive order to cease all non-emergent medical and dental procedures, which is vital to slow the spread of the novel Coronavirus ("COVID-19") throughout the Commonwealth.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and Governor Beshear’s executive order 2020-215, Delta Dental of Kentucky has developed a Provider Advance Payment Program. While this executive order is in place, we understand the financial strain it may cause for medical and dental facilities. This program is available to our PPO™ and Premier® participating network providers affected by COVID-19. Our network providers are important to us and we want to provide support to you during this challenging time. This program aims to provide financial support for operational expenses and continuous essential healthcare services during these unprecedented times.

The Provider Advance Payment Program provides the opportunity for our participating providers to receive an interest-free advance payment from Delta Dental of Kentucky. Advancements of up to 60% of your 2019 average monthly claims reimbursement from Delta Dental of Kentucky ($40,000 maximum advance) are available.

The application period for participating providers is open through May 15, 2020 11:59 p.m. (EST). All advancements will be issued solely through EFT. If you have not yet signed up for EFT, please do so before applying at Dental Office Toolkit.
