Molly PereiraFeatured News

The Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF) is looking to assess the continued need, appropriateness, and cost-effectiveness of its rules and determine whether those rules should be continued, modified, or repealed. In regard to the Colorado Medicaid dental program, for both adults and children, dentists who either love or dislike aspects of what’s covered versus not covered in the program, as well as the different limits imposed and other factors, should submit comments. This is their opportunity to request change or preserve what is working well.
