Medicaid Fees

DCDS is advocating for higher fees to be paid to dentists and other dental providers by Medicaid for covered dental procedures. A hearing on the DC fiscal year 2025 budget for the Department of Health Care Finance - the agency that sets fees under DC Medicaid - will be held on April 10.

All DC dentists who accept patients who are enrolled in Medicaid are encouraged to testify. The deadline to register as a witness is 5 PM on April 8. To testify you must register through the DC Council's Hearings Management System.
