Legislators Consider Denti-Cal Audit

California legislators will hold a hearing Tuesday on an audit that found that more than half of children enrolled in the state’s low-income health program didn’t see a dentist in 2013, the most recent year data was available.

State Auditor Elaine M. Howle’s report, released in December, found that fewer than 45 percent of kids with Denti-Cal saw a dentist in 2013.
