With shelter-in-place orders across the country, there has been a considerable drop off in medical services as result insurance companies are returning some of the premiums to employers in the form of credits.
Each carrier is taking a different approach:
On health plans- an employer could receive anywhere from 5%- 15% credit based on a previous month’s premium.
Dental plans- Credit could be 50%-100% premium credit for an entire month. A few carriers have decided to reduce the dental premium by 10% for the rest of 2020.
We know the last thing a decision-maker wants to do is open an email from their insurance carrier, so if you get a credit on the premium statement, this may be the reason.
