Children's access to Medicaid dental services is a long-standing concern. Medicaid -- a joint fed. and state program that provides health care coverage, including dental care, for 30 million low-income children -- but, many children in Medicaid experience difficulty finding a dentist who would treat them. At the fed. level, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) oversees Medicaid. This report examined: (1) state strategies to monitor and improve access to dental care for children in Medicaid; and (2) CMS actions since 2007 to improve oversight of Medicaid dental services for children. The author surveyed all state Medicaid programs and interviewed state and fed. officials, and dental researchers and associations. Charts and tables.
