MassHealth Dental Coverage

SECTION 76.   Notwithstanding section 53 of chapter 118E of the General Laws, for fiscal year 2020, the executive office of health and human services may determine, subject to required federal approvals, the extent to which to include within its covered services for adults the federally-optional dental services that were included in its state plan or demonstration program in effect on January 1, 2002; provided, however, that dental services for adults enrolled in MassHealth shall be covered at least to the extent they were covered as of June 30, 2019.

This section authorizes MassHealth to continue providing the same level of dental benefits that it is offering in fiscal year 2019.
