At the end of the 2019 legislative session, TDA started working with the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) to make sure that dentistry was included in improvements to Medicaid managed care required by Senate Bill 1207. TDA is excited to report wins for dentists regarding Medicaid complaints and appeals, clinical oversight and benefits, administrative simplification, and network adequacy. Without TDA’s advocacy, HHSC would not have included dentistry in the managed care improvements. Read the upcoming January 2021 TDA Today’s “Medicaid Update” for an in-depth look at the protections TDA is achieving for Medicaid participating dentists. TDA members can read the TDA Today in print, or online here (must be logged in).
