United Concordia Dental – 2017 Dental Solutions Report - 11
t United Concordia Dental, we recognize
the importance of offering access to care
when and where needed. The breadth
and depth of our URAC-accredited
network and network operations set
us apart in the dental industry, giving us the ability to provide
lower out-of-pocket costs and high quality dental care.
Strength in Numbers
Our dental network, one of the largest in the country, supports both
national and local needs. With nearly 127,000 unique dentists at
over 400,000 access points, our customers can be confident that a
credentialed network dentist is always nearby.
Each year, we are focused on further growing and enhancing our network
to maintain United Concordia's competitive advantage. Our efforts over
the past four years have resulted in a nearly 23% increase in the size of
our network. For our customers, this means even greater access to highquality, cost-effective dental care and lower out-of-pocket costs-values
that United Concordia is known for delivering.
Applying Industry Best Practices
Since 2013, United Concordia's network has carried Health Network
Accreditation from URAC, a mark of distinction that demonstrates our
ongoing commitment to fulfilling best practices in network provider
management, patient protections and all aspects of benefit administration.
We received our three-year reaccreditation in 2016, and are proud of
this accomplishment, which is the equivalent of the medical industry's
National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA) accreditation.
Our network solutions continue to lead
the industry in terms of both lower
out-of-pocket costs and high-quality care.
By leveraging the value of our network, we are
connecting members to high-quality dentists
and collaborating with partners to realize
additional business opportunities-all while
expanding access to care."
