DENTAL NEWS:

Apple Health Reimbursement Rate Increase & Provider Enrollment Resources

You may have heard that during the 2021 legislative session, the Legislature allocated $76 million ($21.4 million state) in the 2021-23 Operating Budget to improve access to care through increased fee-for-service reimbursement rates for adult dental Medicaid (Apple Health) providers. As a result, on July 1, reimbursement rates for nearly all Apple Health covered services increased by 100%. If you are currently accepting Apple Health insurance, you will automatically receive increased reimbursements when treating adult Apple Health patients.

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. 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. For questions regarding DentistLink, please email provider@dentistlink.org  or call a DentistLink Outreach Specialist at (208) 771-0444.

Both Apple Health enrollment and billing can be challenging for dentists and their teams. As such, we are pleased to share that the Arcora Foundation has created a free pre-recorded continuing education course to walk you through both processes.

 Who We are and What We Do

We are the professional organization for dentists in Snohomish County & South Whidbey Island in Washington State. Organized in 1951, the Society has over 380 members, who are subject to our Peer Review System and Code of Ethics. All of our members are also members of the Washington State Dental Association and the American Dental Association.

The Society has a staffed central office to provide information on current dental issues, act as a liaison to the community, and serve as a support to our member dentists.

We also provide a referral service to the public at no cost. Member dentists are in good standing with the Snohomish County Dental Society, the Washington State Dental Society, and the American Dental Association. In addition, they:

1. Have agreed to go through a peer review process in the event that a patient has a question about the quality of care. Peer review is available to the public at no charge. The Peer Review Committee only mediates cases concerning member dentists.

 2. Have agreed to complete continuing education every year as required for their annual license renewal.

The Snohomish County Dental Society is dedicated to furthering education, mutual support and better communication with the general public and member dentists. It is our goal to provide this web site as a useful tool for dental information.
