Date:10/20/2008

More Than 100,000 Active Duty Service Members to Be Served Beginning in

August

HARRISBURG, Pa., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- United Concordia Companies, Inc. has been awarded the five-year Active Duty Dental Program (ADDP) contract by the United States Department of Defense (DoD). This is the second major DoD contract to be awarded to the Harrisburg, PA-based national dental insurer. The contract, which is valued at approximately $660 million, will begin August 1, 2009. It is expected to serve more than 100,000 Active Duty Service Members (ADSMs) annually.

"United Concordia is both pleased and honored to have been selected as the administrator for the ADDP," said Daniel J. Lebish, United Concordia president and chief executive officer. "We look forward to continuing our partnership with the TRICARE Management Activity to administer exceptional programs and service for the TRICARE Dental Program and now the ADDP."

United Concordia, a Highmark company, will administer dental benefits for ADSMs who are referred by military Dental Treatment Facilities (DTFs) to the civilian dental community for care, or who reside more than 50 miles from a military DTF.

United Concordia will provide ADSMs care through its dental network of over 50,000 general dentists and 9,500 specialists across the country. To support the unique needs of the ADDP, United Concordia will perform case management through an innovative referral and authorization process -- a first in dental. United Concordia's Dental Care Finder capability will assist ADSMs in obtaining dental appointments on-line or via a live representative. United Concordia will also track dental readiness to ensure ADSMs are ready to deploy through a state-of-the-art reporting system designed specifically for the ADDP. Further, the Government will have access to numerous, individually produced reports on a 24/7 basis.

United Concordia has administered dental benefits for the Department of Defense's TRICARE Dental Program (TDP) since 1996. TDP enrollment includes approximately 1.8 million eligible family members of all active duty uniformed services personnel and National Guard and Reserve members and their families.
