1.c.vi. Annual Dental Visits
Measure: The percentage of enrolled members age 4 through 21 who were enrolled for at least 11 months with the plan during the year and who had at least one dental visit during the year.
Target: At least 60% of the eligible population receive a dental visit.
Minimum Performance Standard: The level of improvement must result in at least a 10% decrease in the difference between the target and the previous years results.
Action Required for Noncompliance: If the standard is not met and the results are below 40%, then the MCP is required to complete a Performance Improvement Project, as described in Appendix K, Quality Assessment and Performance Improvement Program, to address the area of noncompliance. If the standard is not met and the results are at or above 40%, then ODJFS will issue a Quality Improvement Directive which will notify the MCP of noncompliance and may outline the steps that the MCP must take to improve the results.
