    Dental Claims Submission

    Electronic Claims

    To support our paperless initiative and improve your claims processing experience, CareFirst strongly encourages participating and non-participating dental providers to submit dental claims and pre-treatment estimate requests electronically. Secondary Coordination of Benefits (COB) submissions should not be submitted electronically.

    CareFirst requires supporting documentation for certain dental claims. Your documents can be submitted via National Electronic Attachments (NEA).

    Track your claims submissions, help save on administrative costs and improve your dental claims process today.
