Adult Dental Benefit
The act eliminates certain measures that reduce the adult dental benefit.
The act requires the state treasurer to transfer money from the general fund to the unclaimed property trust fund to repay the unclaimed property trust fund for money transferred from it to the general fund in the 2020-21 fiscal year from savings from the reduction of the adult dental benefit in the medical assistance program.
The act appropriates $1,522,875 to the department of health care policy and financing, of which $335,723 is from the healthcare affordability and sustainability fee cash fund and $1,187,152 is from the adult dental fund. The department may use the appropriation for medical and long-term care services for medicaid-eligible individuals.
