Currently, Virginia is one of about half of the states provide comprehensive adult dental coverage to their Medicaid enrollees, with 165,000 of our fellow Virginians using that benefit to access essential dental care in the first full year.
The VDA and ADA are working to remove barriers for dentists who want to participate in the Medicaid program, specifically by making it easier for dentists to become credentialed Medicaid providers and ensuring fair Medicaid audits performed by a dentist from the same specialty and based on guidelines from the ADA and other dental organizations. Members of the VDA met with our congressional delegation last month in Washington to ask for these important changes.
Today, we are asking you to take a minute to ask your members of Congress to support our efforts to improve adults’ access to Medicaid dental benefits.
