Little Hoover Commission report slams California Denti-Cal shortcomings
Sacramento Business Journal

Calling Denti-Cal among California government’s “greatest deficiencies,” the state’s Little Hoover Commission has published a report saying the Medi-Cal dental program falls disastrously short of its goal of providing dental care to the underserved. The report, released Friday, calls for a major change to the underfunded program, which serves 13 million Californians. The bipartisan commission slammed Denti-Cal for its low reimbursement rates, which don’t make it worthwhile for dentists to participate in the program.
