Effective for dates of service August 1, 2021 and forward, the Department of Social Services (DSS) is updating the dental guidelines concerning radiographic coverage. The dental regulations and policies have been put in place to reduce dental procedures that are not medically necessary while maintaining services that will prevent further disease and continue the maintenance of oral health.
DSS is making these changes to ensure that the dental office and outpatient fee schedule remains compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). The changes apply to services reimbursed under the HUSKY Health programs (A, B, C, and D).
