The Largest Medicaid Dental Administrator in the Country
With more than 20 million members in the Medicaid space, we acutely understand the needs and responsibilities demanded by government program administration. These components can take years to develop and fine-tune, years that can be marked by costly investment and mistakes along the learning curve.
DentaQuest already has a best-in-class benefits administration engine up and running, anchored by our $100 million fully integrated and interoperable IT system. In fact, this system was developed specifically for the administration of government programs.
Cost Control Experts
Cost control is critical to a successful and sustainable dental program. Our decades of experience have sharpened our expertise – not only with controlling costs, but doing so while improving member health. We possess the largest repository of government claims data in the country, and we use that data to uniquely understand and quickly identify cost, health, provider, and program effectiveness trends and solutions.
Our claims processing systems outpace the competition in both accuracy and performance. We consistently exceed industry averages in financial accuracy, processing accuracy and auto adjudication rate.
Claims costs account for as much as 95% of overall program costs, and keeping them under control is vital. Methods of claims cost management include utilization management, pre-authorizations, and claims reviews to reduce fraud, waste and abuse.
Prevention and wellness programs dramatically reduce serious – and far more expensive – oral health problems later in life. Our programs leverage the known link between oral health and overall health to better manage health complications such as diabetes, and can reduce the costs of overall healthcare.
