BCBS pays $1M to give Michigan dentists free PPE kits

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan is donating emergency personal protective equipment kits to dentists across the state, according to NBC affiliate WPBN-TV.

The insurance company donated $1 million to purchase PPE for dentists and partnered with the Michigan Dental Association to assemble and distribute the safety kits. Each kit will contain National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health-approved KN95 masks, disposable isolation gowns with cuffs and bouffant hair caps.

Any Michigan dentist, regardless of MDA membership, is eligible to receive a free kit. The deadline to register for a kit is Sept. 14.
