Apply for LDPP funding by Sept. 30


The deadline to apply for Local Dental Pilot Project funding under Domain 4 of the Dental Transformation Initiative is Friday, Sept. 30.

The California Department of Health Care Services opened its application cycle June 1 for LDPP proposals developed under the Medi-Cal 2020 waiver. Fifteen pilot projects will be selected to commence in January 2017. The Local Dental Pilot Project is one of the four domains under the DTI. The domains focus on preventive dental services; caries risk assessment and treatment; and continuity of care.

Find more information about the LDPP application and the DTI's provider incentives on the Department of Health Care Services website.

The state Legislature and governor recently agreed to a deal, supported by CDA, that will preserve $1.3 billion in federal funding for Medi-Cal. The agreement reforms the state’s managed care organization (MCO) tax to comply with federal requirements that the tax apply to all managed care health plans, not just those that serve Medi-Cal patients, in order to preserve the federal matching money the tax brings to the state.
