Update on Dental Benefit Plan Implementation

Thursday, January 31, 2013  |  Contact: Bayou Health (225) 342-7878

DHH is not announcing a winning proposal to operate the Medicaid Dental Benefit Plan (DBP) at this time. We are working with our actuaries and federal officials to ensure that we are able to move forward in a manner that is cost effective and compliant with applicable federal regulations. Therefore, DHH is postponing its planned March 1, 2013 implementation.  Once more information is available or an announcement is ready, it will be posted here at this web address. Please continue to direct any future questions related to this RFP to Medicaid procurement manager Gail Williams at
