Dental Coverage and Opportunities for States to Access Medicaid for Adults Webinar

Medicaid programs are required by federal rules to cover comprehensive dental services for children, but dental care coverage for adults in Medicaid is optional for states and is often one of the benefits to be taken off the table when budgets get tight.  The Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) will be providing an overview of adult dental coverage in Medicaid during a 90-minute webinar on February 17, 2015 at 12:00 PM ET.  Colorado and Kentucky will be highlighted as Medicaid expansion states and will share their experiences on expanding dental coverage.

While most states offer some form of dental coverage to Medicaid enrolled adults, only 32 states cover services beyond emergency care, and only 16 states offer comprehensive dental coverage.
