Office alert

Claims processing change to match NPI numbers begins Oct. 5

Starting Monday, Oct. 5, 2020, DDSD will match claims using the billing and treating NPI numbers in addition to the tax identification number (TIN) and license number.

Including a billing and treating NPI number will be required to process any claim submitted. A claim submitted without a billing and treating NPI number, or if an NPI number on the claim does not match the corresponding number in the DDSD claims system, will not be processed. A Professional Relations Representative will contact the office to resolve the issue for the claim.

Providers enrolled with SD Medicaid must have the same billing and treating NPI numbers on file in the SD Medicaid SDMEDX system as are on file with Delta Dental of South Dakota.

To prevent delays in claims processing, please ensure the correct billing and treating NPI numbers are included on each claim. Contact us at or 877-841-1478 if you have any questions. We're happy to help!
