What you need to know

Bupa administers the dental plan, which is 100% company-paid for you and your family. This means PayPal pays the cost of the policy, but you pay tax on the dental policy amount. You can cover your spouse/partner and children (until the renewal following their 24th birthday), regardless of disability or educational status. All regular employees, fixed-term contractors (on the PayPal payroll), and interns are eligible for the plan.

What the plan covers

Your Bupa Dental Plan gives you cover towards the cost of your eligible dental treatment, up to your annual benefit limit, including:

  • No pre-joining checks — start claiming straightaway (a six-month waiting period applies for oral cancer) 
  • Cover for restorative treatment, such as fillings and crowns and preventive treatment, including checkup and scale and polish
  • Worldwide emergency cover
  • Cover if you’re a private or NHS patient — no need to change from your current dentist

Some of the key exclusions of Bupa Dental Plan include:

  • Cosmetic treatment
  • Dental treatment as a result of injury sustained through physical contact sport
  • Sports mouthguards

We’ve gone fully digital. Bupa Touch provides information on how to request treatment, access to plan documents, and find a Bupa dentist or facility.

Your BUPA dental plan is 100% paid for by PayPal. However, it’s a taxable benefit, which means that while the company pays the cost for the policy, you pay tax on the amount of the benefit.
