WSDA & Arcora Foundation Partnership
In an effort to increase dentist participation in the Apple Health program, WSDA is partnering with the Arcora Foundation to encourage dentists to enroll as Apple Health providers and to sign up with DentistLink, Arcora’s free referral service, to start receiving referrals for adult Apple Health enrollees. Please note that as an Apple Health provider, you have full discretion in determining the number of adult Apple Health patients seen at your practice.
