AB 316: Medi-Cal: Benefits: Beneficiaries with Special Dental Care Needs (2019 - 2020)

Summary: 

Would require the State Department of Health Care Services to implement a special needs
treatment and management benefit, which would be provided for 4 visits in a 12-month period for a
Medi-Cal dental program beneficiary with special dental care needs, as defined. The bill would require
a Medi-Cal dental program provider to document the need for additional time to treat a Medi-Cal dental
program beneficiary with special dental care needs. The bill would not limit the provision or scope of
Medi-Cal benefits covered under existing law.
