Audience: Participating Dental providers
Excellus BlueCross BlueShield is pleased to announce the addition of Diocese of Syracuse as a new employer group effective July 1, 2020. Please see below for important information for your office or facility.
Product Information and Member Cards
- Diocese of Syracuse members will have Dental Blue Options coverage.
- New member cards will be issued. Members should use their new member cards for dental services rendered on or after July 1, 2020.
- Dental claims for services rendered prior to July 1, 2020 should be submitted with the patient’s previous member card information.
Verifying Benefits and Eligibility
- It is important to check member cards and verify benefits and eligibility at each visit.
- Make a copy of your patient’s new member card for your records.
- Claims submitted with inaccurate ID numbers or alpha prefixes will be rejected as “Member Not Eligible,” delaying payment and requiring submission of a new claim with the correct subscriber information.
