Last Thursday, Texas Health and Human Services held its Biannual Managed Care Stakeholder Meeting in Austin. The meeting was primarily hosted by Jami Snyder, the Associate Commissioner for the Medicaid & CHIP Services Department of HHS.
During the open discussion period at the end of the meeting, Dr. Paul Dunn representing TDMR and Diana Cumbow of the Texas Dentist Group Practice Association (TDGPA) expressed their concerns about dental managed care, primarily about MCNA. Rather than summarize the interactions in this article, it is best to see their questions and Ms. Snyder’s responses. Please watch our short 10-minute video of the proceedings.
The next stakeholders meeting will be July 12.
