September 13, 2013

The state Medicaid program recently began gathering stakeholder input on how the new adult dental benefit should be organized and what services the dental benefit should include.

Topics discussed included coverage for diagnostic, preventive and restorative dental services. Four additional stakeholder meetings on various topics, including endodontic, oral surgery, prosthodontic, pediatric and orthodontic coverage, will be held this fall.

National Recovery Month

September 13, 2013
