Dentists Enroll in Medicare?
 
Most dental services are not covered by Medicare; therefore, most dentists are not enrolled in Medicare. However, to ensure that patients on Medicare receive the services and supplies ordered for them by their dentist, SDDA members should enroll In Medicare.  Dentists may utilize a simplified process of enrollment in Medicare because the dentist will not be directly billing Medicare. Members should enroll by filling out short form: CMS-855-O and mailing it to South Dakota's Medicare administrative contractor:
Noridian Healthcare Solutions

PO Box 6733

Fargo, ND 58108-6707
