Time frame for Enrolling in HIP dental provider network extended to June 30, 2015

In Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) Provider Bulletin BT201508, dated February 5, 2015, currently enrolled IHCP dental providers were given until April 30, 2015, to complete the provider enrollment and credentialing process with DentaQuest in order to participate in the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) dental provider network. The IHCP is extending that grace period through June 30, 2015.

DentaQuest will continue to pay claims from current IHCP providers for services rendered to HIP members, regardless of providers' DentaQuest credentialing status, for dates of service (DOS) through June 30, 2015. Effective for DOS on or after July 1, 2015, only DentaQuest-credentialed providers participating in the HIP network will be paid for covered services.
