Dental services for children enrolled in Medicaid and CHP drops nearly 70% due to pandemic

This “precipitous decline in services remains a cause for concern. Not only must state and local agencies, providers, schools, and other key stakeholders work on returning to prior year treatment levels, they must also strive to treat the millions of children who have already missed important medical services.”
