Dental Benefits Under Healthcare Reform

Legislative and Regulatory Trends

Bush administration issues new rules through Center for Medicaid Services (CMS)

Thwarts states from directing SCHIP funds to kids above 250 percent FPL (affecting 17 states including CA)

Kids above 250% of FPL must show proof of no insurance for 1 full year (CA requires just 3 months)

States must demonstrate 95% enrollment of Medicaid and SCHIP eligible kids under 200% FPL before extending coverage higher

Sacramento Bee editorial: the new guidelines "will surely add to, not reduce, the numbers of uninsured children"

National Association of Medicaid Directors and 44 Senators voice objection to the rules, which Congress will try to overturn
