2019 Medicaid Rate Increase Details

Throughout this year, Oral Health Kansas has reported on the Medicaid dental rate increase we advocated for. The 2019 Legislature appropriated $3 million for a rate increase, and it went into effect on August 1. Thirty-nine dental codes received a 6% rate increase. These codes include some restorative and preventive services. While the dollars allocated were not enough for a meaningful increase in all the Medicaid dental codes, the 6% increase on these codes is an important step. Oral Health Kansas will continue to advocate for additional rate increases in 2020 because improved Medicaid dental rates can make an impact on increasing the Medicaid dental provider network in our state.
