With dental offices across Canada closed for all but emergency procedures, if there’s one hot topic on the minds of the Canadian dental community, it’s Pandemic Outbreak Coverage.
But what is Pandemic Outbreak Coverage? And what cover does it provide for participating dentists?
Ed Dermit, President of CDSPI, in conversation with John O’Keefe, Director of Knowledge Networks, CDA, explains that the pandemic coverage included in the CDSPI TripleGuardTM Insurance Pandemic Coverage is somewhat unique to Canada. He clarifies the difference between Pandemic Outbreak Coverage and business interruption coverage, outlines the benefits of Pandemic Outbreak Coverage, and details how participating dentists can register a claim.
He also addresses concerns over working in emergency or voluntary care at this time, and how it may impact coverage.
“what I want to start by saying is that I want to be clear that CDSPI, as a not-for-profit organization, our stakeholders are the provincial dental associations, the Canadian Dental Association, [and] the territories. It is the dental associations that actually elect our board of directors. And as such, we are clearly advocating for dentists.” Ed Dermit, President CDSPI
