Get an NPI to submit electronic claims
A National Provider Identifier (NPI) is a unique, 10-digit number provided by the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) assigned to providers to simplify health care administration. NPIs must be included when submitting claims electronically, which ensures secure transactions and is in compliance with HIPAA regulations. In addition, individual states may require use of the NPI for paper claims.
To minimize potential claim processing errors and delays in payment, United Concordia encourages all dentists to obtain NPIs.
Submit your NPI to United Concordia Dental
As soon as you receive your NPI, please submit it along with your entity type (1 or 2), National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) confirmation, your address and United Concordia Provider Number to our Provider Data Management Department.
