Report shows Denti-Cal reimbursement rates lagging

SACRAMENTO, Calif., USA: A new review of the California’s Denti-Cal program provides further evidence that current rates are insufficient and that there has been a significant decline in participating providers since 2008, according to the California Dental Association. The report from the state Department of Health Care Services shows that while there has been a nearly 40 percent increase in enrolled children and 77 percent increase in enrolled adults, there has been a double-digit decrease in providers in that same timeframe.
