Network Development Representatives (NDRs)

Medical network representatives are available to medical practitioners through our seven office locations throughout the state. Medical network representatives share information on our health plans and provider network activities. They also work with doctors and hospitals to resolve claims issues, help them file for reimbursement, answer billing and coding questions, and help in any way they can.

If you have questions, they are only a phone call away!

Our dental network representatives visit with participating providers throughout the state and are as close as a telephone call. They recruit new providers and share information with current providers and their staff on new dental plans and provider network activities. They also work with the dental providers to resolve claims issues, help them file for reimbursement, answer billing and coding questions and review new statutory or administrative requirements. You can meet our dental network representatives at the annual Arkansas State Dental Association convention.
