Because Dental Health Matters

By Greg Hill, CDA Executive Director
 
It is a mark of how far we have come in the past few years that the Colorado Dental Association is now leading public dialogue on oral health on so many different levels. Our wide-ranging outreach efforts—to our state’s policymakers, to underserved communities and populations, to our own members—have helped prioritize our agenda for advancing oral health. With this in mind, the CDA has created and launched Dental Health Matters. This campaign will draw together all of our efforts to advance the oral health of Coloradans and provide an even more cohesive and proactive approach for the future.

Update: Medicare Opt In and Opt Out Requirements for Dentists

December 17, 2015 (updated March 8, 2016)

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has extended the deadline for Medicare Part D ordering/referring providers to opt in or opt out to Feb. 1, 2017. Why is this important? Dentists who treat Medicare patients must either enroll in the Medicare program or opt out to ensure tests, procedures, devices and drugs ordered for Medicare patients will be reimbursed, as well as prevent denial of reimbursement for other providers you refer patients to. Currently, this requirement applies to the federal MediCARE plans (generally senior and disabled patients) as opposed to the state-based MediCAID plans (for low-income patients).
