Due to reduced claim activity in spring 2020, several retiree insurance plans administered by FPPA are providing premium credits to impacted participants. Details for affected plans are provided below:

Dental insurance billing credits for FPPA’s Delta Dental Plan

Delta Dental of Colorado recently announced that they will be providing billing credits for their covered members due to reduced claims activity for March and April. Dental claims were significantly lower as a result of mandated COVID-19 dental provider office closures during this timeframe.

Eligible members of FPPA's Delta Dental Insurance Plan (see details for other plans below) will receive a 50% premium credit for their Delta Dental March premium and a 50% premium credit for their April premium. These premiums were previously withheld from pension payments in February and March. As a reminder, FPPA withholds Delta Dental premiums on a prepaid basis, meaning that premiums deducted in the current month pay for next month’s coverage.

FPPA will be issuing these two 50% credits to retirees in the form of a “premium holiday” in July pension payments. For the month of July, FPPA will pause Delta Dental premium deductions for one month to allow this credit to be applied to participant accounts. FPPA will resume premium deductions with participants' August benefit payment. To participants, rest assured that your dental coverage will remain in full effect and you may continue to utilize dental services as usual.

If you have any questions regarding the Delta Dental credit, please contact the FPPA Payroll Department at (303) 770-3772 ext. 6200 or RetireePayroll@fppaco.org.
