Welcome, DentaQuest Dentist

Important Indiana Dental Care Plus Information:

Important Information about Healthy Indiana Plan, Hoosier Care Connect and Hoosier Healthwise programs:

DentaQuest has partnered with two Managed Care Entities (MCEs) in Indiana to administer the state's Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP), Hoosier Care Connect and Hoosier Healthwise programs. Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Anthem) has chosen DentaQuest to administer the HIP, Hoosier Care Connect and Hoosier Healthwise dental benefits.  MDwise has chosen DentaQuest to administer the HIP and Hoosier Healthwise dental benefits.  
DentaQuest encourages providers to Enroll Online or click HERE to submit your CAQH information. You can also contact one of our recruiters at 1-855-873-1283 to obtain a paper application to participate in the DentaQuest network.

Once you are enrolled as a DentaQuest provider, you will be able to access the DentaQuest secure provider web portal to submit claims and prior authorization requests, check member eligibility, and review claims status.
HIP and Hoosier Care Connect Network:
  • The HIP and Hoosier Care Connect networks will remain open until they have been deemed fully complaint by the state of Indiana. We encourage you to complete the contracting and credentialing process immediately to ensure you and your staff are enrolled and credentialed.
Authorization Grace Period
  • Hoosier Care Connect Grace Period: DentaQuest will honor all services approved by IHCP for 90 days following a members movement into Managed care or between Managed care plans. After the 90 day transitional period closes, DentaQuest will not honor services approved by IHCP that have not yet been rendered. This will create a sliding scale based upon individual member’s movements into Managed care.

Hoosier Healthwise Coordination of Care:

  • DentaQuest will honor all previous care authorizations from the member’s enrollment in the Hoosier Healthwise program from a previous health plan. From January 1, 2017, through March 31, 2017, DentaQuest will accept previous authorizations from the newly eligible member’s previous health plan for 90 calendar days. As of April 1, 2017, DentaQuest will accept previous authorizations from the newly eligible member’s previous health plan for 30 calendar days. Contracted or non-contracted IHCP providers should submit the previous care authorization as an attachment with the claim.
