Effective for dates of service May 21, 2021 and forward, CMAP enrolled providers MUST obtain Prior Authorization for Dental (Endodontic) Services. Providers should start the process to secure PA for Endodontic Dental Services for dates of service May 21, 2021 and forward.
As a measure to assist providers in the response to the state public health emergency (PHE) declared to address the spread of COVID-19, DSS, under the authority of Executive Order 7EE, Section 4, temporarily waived or modified the Prior Authorization requirements for Dental (Endodontic) Services. In the absence of continuation of this EO, DSS will not have the authority to continue to waive or modify the PA requirements.
Please note that it is possible that further extensions of such temporary authority to waiver or modify the PA requirements beyond May 21, 2021 may occur, and DSS is closely monitoring the situation and will work to notify providers as expeditiously as possible of any such change.
