Michigan’s fee-for-service adult Medicaid dental plan is too burdensome for dentists; Too complex for patients; And uses a severely outdated fee structure.
Consolidating all of Michigan’s Medicaid dental plans into one program will enable more dentists to accept patients, ensuring everyone who needs a dentist can find one and families can see the dentist together.
Oral health care is a critical component of the overall health of our state. Prevention is more cost effective than treatment – for patients, and for taxpayers, too. Don’t miss this opportunity to modernize Medicaid dental during the budget cycle.
If we want:
Ease of administration for dentists
Increased access for patients
A healthier future workforce for Michigan
We must use the state budget process to fix Michigan’s dental program.
