The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant effect on NADP’s state-level advocacy in 2020. In response to the pandemic, NADP created tracking resources to follow topics like insurance grace periods, telemedicine initiatives, filing requirements, special enrollment periods, and state re-opening guidelines. These resources are meant to assist members as they navigate the state and federal policy landscape and respond to the pandemic. NADP also closely tracked state initiatives related to personal protective equipment (PPE), some of which were promoted by state dental associations. As state efforts to administer the COVID vaccine and vaccinate front line medical staff have begun, NADP has continued to keep members informed of newly publicized state plans and the push to include dentists among the first to receive the vaccine.
