Pennsylvania Medicaid Program’s Work with MCOs to Improve Oral Health Access Highlighted


In a new blog, the National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) highlights Pennsylvania’s work with managed care organizations (MCOs) to improve access to oral health care services through quality improvement projects, measures, and incentives. States are engaged in a variety of efforts to improve health outcomes for people enrolled in Medicaid while reducing health care costs. NASHP says Pennsylvania’s experience shows that quality initiatives are one potential lever to incentivize MCOs to provide innovative oral health programming.
