This webinar features a federal perspective from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services on opportunities and promising strategies for states to leverage this benefit to better meet the oral health needs of children. This is followed by a conversation with Medicaid officials from Maryland and Texas about initiatives they have launched to improve delivery of oral health services in their states using the Medicaid benefit for children. Participants learn about these states’ strategies for getting Medicaid-enrolled children the oral health services they need, key decision points that led states to their approaches and practical steps toward implementing them.
