A: First, confirm the claim was sent to NovaNet. If so, please contact NovaNet's Claims Department at (770) 729-1997, option 6. If the claim was sent directly to the payor or to another network, please contact that payor or network for claim status information.
Q: How do I know whether a member is accessing NovaNet's network?
A: The NovaNet logo will be on the member's identification card and NovaNet will be identified as the discount source on the EOB (Explanation of Benefits).

Q: How do I know whether I am a participating dental provider?
A: If a provider is part of Aetna Dental Administrators and the Aetna Dental Administrators logo is on the member's identification card, then that provider is in network for that member. If a provider is part of Dental Health Alliance and the Dental Health Alliance logo is on the member's identification card, then that provider is in network for that member.
Q: If I am a participating provider in NovaNet's PPO network, am I automatically part of NovaNet's workers' compensation or travel/wrap networks?
A: No. To join NovaNet's workers' compensation network, an amendment to the provider's existing group health network agreement must be executed. NovaNet's travel/wrap network is operated separately from its other lines of business and has no relationship to its group health or workers' compensation networks.
