In 2013, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) partnered with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in providing three free 90-minute webinars on "Compliance for the Medicaid Dental Professional."

Federal regulations require State Medicaid programs to ensure services are accurate and supported by proper documentation. During this presentation, Dr. Lynn Mouden, chief dental officer for the Federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (DHHS), and David Himmelreich, a licensed attorney and senior subject matter expert in the area of Fraud, Waste, and Abuse for Strategic Health Solutions, LLC, provided a comprehensive overviews of Medicaid program integrity, common compliance vulnerabilities, and benefits derived from developing or improving a compliance program. Specifically, the presentation clarified what documentation of medical necessity means for dental service providers. In addition, the presentation suggested ways in which written policies, staff training, dental software, and self-audits should assist you in achieving compliance with the requirements of the Medicaid program, while meeting your own expectations for providing quality dental care.
