Unum Dental fast-tracks employee access to Dental Insurance

Unum Dental has enhanced how employees access their insurance cover, enabling employees to opt-in to their workplace dental cover via a streamlined online process, that has been specifically designed to improve the enrolment experience for employees when accessing dental insurance cover through the workplace.

It can be expensive and difficult to maintain employee engagement and productivity levels in the workplace but providing the right benefits can facilitate staff satisfaction and retention. Unum research shows that dental cover is a popular option – 30% of those surveyed said they would pay for dental cover if their employer had a scheme in place*.

With Unum digitising the voluntary enrolment process, employees can now access dental insurance cover through the simple, paperless system. This can be accessed on the go via a smartphone, allowing for employees to manage their claims easily. In addition, the solution provides a cost-effective method of providing access to employee’s workplace dental plans with minimal admin to small to medium sized employers alike.

The employee enrolment portal is the latest addition to Unum Dental’s digital offering, creating an end-to-end dental insurance solution for quick joining and fast claims payment.

Unum Dental also have the least exclusions compared to any other leading corporate dental providers** and provide cover for both planned and pending treatments identified before the policy start date.

Andrew Bower, Managing Director at Unum Dental says, “Dental cover is the most popular voluntary health benefit offered*** and in recognition of that we wanted to give businesses a cost-effective solution which eliminates the complex paper application process voluntary benefit schemes typically carried in the past. This new portal further enhances  our digital offering, allowing us to create a completely online experience that is both user-friendly and significantly reduces our paper footprint.”
