Attention Medicaid Providers: Draft Legislative Report

The Washington State Health Care Authority (HCA) has released its draft legislative report regarding contracting out the administration of our state’s dental Medicaid program as required in the 2016 supplemental budget. The report includes an overview of the dental Medicaid program, utilization data, three potential options for contracting out the dental Medicaid benefit, a review of dental benefit structures in other states, and an information system impact analysis. 

Medicaid providers are encouraged to review this draft and provide any comments, suggested changes, or corrections to the HCA at dentalreports2016@hca.wa.gov by September 30. 

The HCA is also offering to hold meetings or telephone conferences to discuss stakeholder feedback; if you would like to schedule a meeting, please contact Catherine Georg at catherine.georg@hca.wa.gov.
