Florida Awards Medicaid Dental Contracts

Florida Awards Medicaid Dental Contracts.

The News Service of Florida (6/29) reported Florida Medicaid officials last week announced plans to “sign contracts with three managed-care companies to provide dental care” – MCNA Dental, DentaQuest of Florida, and Liberty Dental Plan of Florida. According to the piece, Florida is allowed to “award up to four dental contracts with prepaid dental health plans” that “are required to have at least one dentist per 1,500 enrollees, at least one pediatric dentist per 3,000 enrollees and at least one endodontics specialist per 5,000 enrollees. AHCA distributed a timeline that shows the state would like to start transitioning Medicaid patients to new dental plans beginning in December.”
