Updated Version of the American Dental Association Claim Form Now Available

September 30, 2019

Note: Texas Medicaid managed care organizations (MCOs) must provide all medically necessary, Medicaid-covered services to eligible clients. Administrative procedures such as prior authorization, pre-certification, referrals, and claims/encounter data filing may differ from traditional Medicaid (fee-for-service) and from MCO to MCO. Providers should contact the client's specific MCO for details.

The American Dental Association (ADA) has approved the new 2019 ADA Dental Claim Form as the replacement for the 2012 and 2018 ADA Dental Claim Form. TMHP will continue to accept dental claims submitted on the 2012 and 2018 ADA dental claim forms and will update the Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual and the Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) Services Program Provider Manual with the September release.

Reminder: Providers can submit dental claims electronically through TexMedConnect.

For more information, call the TMHP Contact Center at 1-800-925-9126 or the TMHP-CSHCN Services Program Contact Center at 1-800-568-2413.
