  • Members have received updated BCBS FEP Dental ID cards. If the member is covered under the Federal Employee Health Benefit Program (FEHBP), you may need to file with the FEP medical ID card first.

Blue Cross Blue Shield FEP Dental Partnership with GRID+ Dental Network 

The Blue Cross Blue Shield Association (BCBSA) has partnered with the GRID+ Dental Network to administer BCBS FEP Dental. BCBS FEP Dental members can utilize the GRID+ network as an in-network provider source. By participating in the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (Blue Cross NC) plan, you now have access to BCBS FEP Dental members. The member’s card will be identified with BCBS FEP Dental at the top of the ID card, along with the claims submission address and customer service number on the back to verify benefits. 

For claims issues, contact the company listed on the member’s ID card for questions related to a specific claim. If the plan cannot adequately answer questions about your contracted fee amount, please contact Blue Cross NC’s Provider Service department at 1-800-777-1643, Option 6
