Dental Prior Authorization Documentation Submission

Please read the following update from the HCA: 

Beginning immediately, the Apple Health Dental Program will no longer accept documentation on CDs, thumb drives, or any devices that are required to be downloaded on state-owned equipment.

See the Health Care Authority’s (HCA) Prior Authorization page for information on ways to submit requests and documentation.

HCA will include this reminder in the next revision of the Dental Billing Guide, effective April 1, 2020.

Medicaid Transition to Managed Care Cancelled

The 2019 Legislature has directed the Washington State Health Care Authority (HCA) to continue to administer the dental Medicaid program through fee-for-service. The HCA may not proceed with a carved-out or carved-in managed care dental option at this time.
