For better teeth

Posted By on Thu, Sep 14, 2006 at 2:52 PM

Good news for poor kids with cavities. And other tooth problems.

The feds have approved an increase in the Medicaid reimbursement rate to Arkansas dentists. Medicaid will now pay 95 percent of the amount reimbursed by the private Delta Dental Premier plan, which amounts to an increase over previous Medicaid reimbursements of 48 percent and likely means many more dentists will participate. More dental services will also qualify for reimbursement.
