Reduce The Adult Dental Benefit
Beginning when the higher federal match afforded through the federal "Families First Coronavirus Response Act" expires, the act reduces the adult dental benefit so that it does not exceed $1,000 per year for a participant.
From the savings from the reduction of the adult dental benefit in the medical assistance program, the act transfers $1,139,402 from the unclaimed property trust fund to the general fund in the 2020-21 fiscal year and $2,278,804 in the 2021-22 fiscal year. Furthermore, the act requires $331,462 to be appropriated from the healthcare affordability and sustainability fee cash fund to offset general fund expenditures for the state medical assistance program.
