Attention TRICARE Dental Program Participants – Notification of Carrier Change

Effective May 1, 2017, United Concordia (Payor ID 89070) will assume responsibility for administrating the TRICARE Dental Program (TDP), replacing the outgoing contractor, MetLife (Payor ID 65978).

Due to this change, it is very important that claims submitted to Henry Schein Practice Solutions have the correct Payor ID in order for the claims to be processed without interruption.

Use Payor ID 65978 if: claims have a Date of Service on or before April 30, 2017, for the TRICARE Dental Program (TDP) / TRICARE TDP administered through MetLife.

Use Payor ID 89070 if: claims have a Date of Service on or later than May 1, 2017, for the TRICARE Dental Program (TDP) / TRICARE TDP administered through United Concordia.

TRICARE Dental Program (TDP) / TRICARE TDP claims sent to the wrong Payor ID after May 1, 2017, based on the Date of Service (DOS), will be denied by that processor and an EOB will be sent to the dental office. The mailing address for TDP Claims is: PO Box 69451, Harrisburg, PA, 17110.
