Note: October 8, 2019 Note for our Canadian Customers:
We are aware of issues regarding the ClaimSecure carrier. You may receive an "Input string was not in a correct format" error when sending claims.

Claims are going through to ClaimSecure, however you are not able to view EOB or Acknowledgment responses. You may send predeterminations prior to sending the claim to view payment information.

Update Carrier Logic

For brand new offices: To import the most recent carrier data, check all boxes (Name, Address, Phone, and Add Missing), then click Update Carriers. This will import the most recent carrier data from the CDA.

For offices that converted to Open Dental or are existing Open Dental users: Uncheck Name, Address, and Phone. Keep Add Missing checked, then click Update Carriers. This will update the CDAnet information for all carriers, as well as add any missing or new carriers. This ensures that existing carrier data (such as name and address) is not edited.

Duplicate Carriers: You may find duplicate carriers in your list. This can be caused for a number of reasons. For example:

Duplicate carriers should be combined into the correct carrier.
