Starting today, July 1, a comprehensive dental benefit for Medicaid-eligible adults is available.
What does that mean?
This means that over 300,000 adults who qualify for Medicaid can access a robust schedule of dental services including restorative treatment, root canals, crowns, surgical procedures and full/partial dentures (note that prior authorization is required for certain designated codes).
What else is new?
Starting today, July 1, DentaQuest is the new administrator of the Colorado Medicaid Dental Program. This means that all Medicaid claims billed on or after July 1, for both adults and children, will be processed through DentaQuest. DentaQuest also has a team in Colorado dedicated to serving providers, and their provider service phone number is equipped to answer any day-to-day questions that providers may have: 855-225-1731.
