    1. Najeia, I was reading your Janaury article on changes in oral health policy. I would like to put together a panel of state officials that can comment on their policy changes and program changes impacting oral health as well as their concerns about the potential impact of per capita caps on these programs. The panel would be for a webinar for dental plans–both members and non-members of the National Association of Dental Plans. We are trying to educate these plans to be advocates for maintaining oral health coverage for adults in Medicaid as well as supporting extended funding for CHIP. Can you help by providing contacts for the programs that you profile? I am happy to reach out to them to see if they are willing to present or perhaps you have a group that has already done a webinar presentation that we can leverage.

      NADP is the trade association of dental benefit plans. Our members provide more than 90% of the dental coverage for Americans both in employer provided policies, individual policies and government programs. Thank you for your consideration.
