New Licensing Requirement For Dentists
The Affordable Care Act included provisions for providers to formally opt in and opt out of federal programs. Two of these such requirements was to opt in or opt out of Medicare and MassHealth. The MDS has been informing members of this requirement to take:
- Medicare action by January 1, 2016, in order for your patients to receive benefits for prescription drugs
- MassHealth action b March 31, 2018, where it will be tied to the dental license renewal cycle.
