Have Your Say: Nominate a Dentist
to Our Network
One of the great advantages of being New York's health and wellness company is our ability to form strong partnerships with the providers in our region. As part of our ongoing dedication to the communities we serve, EmblemHealth welcomes the opportunity to work with brokers, members and health care professionals to identify new providers to include in our dental network.
Did you know that you can request a dentist or specialist to be added to our dental network? If you or your clients identify a coverage gap in your area, or even if a favorite local dentist does not appear in the EmblemHealth directory of participating dentists, you or your client can submit a Dentist Nomination Form to request that we consider adding that provider to our network.*
Unlike the national health insurers that may operate hundreds of miles from their coverage areas, EmblemHealth's proximity to the communities we serve enables our Dental Management team to promptly connect with dental providers to discuss joining our network. "It is not uncommon," says Lydia Barad, EmblemHealth’s Dental Management Director, "for one of our dental provider relations specialists to receive a nomination form and call or visit the dental office that afternoon. As a regional company, we have the opportunity to establish and maintain those community connections."
Since its inception, the EmblemHealth dentist nomination program has contributed to the successful growth rate of our Preferred dental network, which now boasts over 8,000 dental providers. We are proud of our tradition of partnership with brokers and health care professionals, and we look forward to continue working together to provide the best possible service to our members.
*Please note that nominations are not a guarantee of future participation. A provider's participation will depend on multiple considerations, including current dentist availability, satisfying EmblemHealth's provider credentialing requirements and the provider's interest in joining the EmblemHealth network.
