Dental Coverage for Adult Medi-Cal Beneficiaries Restored
On Thursday, Medi-Cal dental coverage for adults was restored. Medi-Cal is the state's Medicaid program. The state in 2009 eliminated dental coverage for adult Medi-Cal beneficiaries to help address the state's budget deficit. However, the state Legislature last year voted to restore coverage for some dental services for adult beneficiaries, effective May 1.
