Effective for dates of service January 1, 2024, and forward, the Department of Social Services (DSS) will pay for select Periodontal Procedure Codes for the evaluation and non-surgical treatment and non-surgical management of Periodontal Disease, regardless of whether surgical intervention may be recommended or required in the future. The select Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) for the current Dental Terminology (CDT) periodontal procedure codes have been added to the Dental Adult and Dental Pediatric fee schedules.

Dear HUSKY Health Dental Practitioner,

We have now launched our new and improved online survey for dentists and dental practices that serve the HUSKY Health (Medicaid) and Covered CT populations in Connecticut.

The Survey closes on Thursday, November 30, 2023 (now December 31st) and is available on the Provider Login Page on ctdhp.org. The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete. We know you are busy, but survey completion is needed to allow us to provide the most appropriate referrals to your office. So complete it as soon as you can.

Your input enables Connecticut Dental Health Partnership Member Service representatives to assist HUSKY Health members, by giving them dental referrals that best meet their needs. That in turn improves the quality of the referrals you will receive.
