Pinnacol Launches Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) Assistance Program August 12,2020

Many of Pinnacol Assurance’s customers in the restaurant industry have been hit hard by the Coronavirus pandemic. Their businesses have been forced to shut down, and now that they’ve reopened, capacity is limited. There are also strict guidelines on the use of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE).

Pinnacol is making things a little easier for its restaurant customers by offering financial assistance for required PPE like face coverings and gloves. The workers’ compensation insurer’s new PPE Assistance Program for restaurant works like this:

  • Customers can email their Pinnacol agent or underwriter an itemized receipt or invoice that shows they purchased the eligible PPE between July 1, 2020, and Sept. 30, 2020. Eligible PPE is defined as equipment required by the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment in their COVID-19 Guidance for Restaurants and Food Services (i.e., face coverings and gloves).

The customer’s policy must be active (although it can be in non-cancellation pending status) when Pinnacol receives the receipt or invoice for PPE credit. Pinnacol must receive the receipt or invoice between July 1 and Sept. 30, 2020. (The customer can email the receipt themselves or through their agent.)

  • Pinnacol will credit customers for a total of $100 per policy, regardless of the number of locations on their policy. If Pinnacol receives an invoice or receipt for more than $100, the customer will receive a credit for $100. If the invoice or receipt is less than $100, Pinnacol will credit them for the cost of their purchase.

If you have questions about the PPE Assistance Program, please don’t hesitate to contact Pinnacol’s Customer Experience team. They can be reached Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 303.361.4000.
