Primary care physicians can be reimbursed by Medicaid to apply fluoride varnish during well or sick child examinations for children up to age six. This service is reimbursable ($15.00) when provided in addition to a well or sick child visit, but cannot be the sole reason for the visit. In order to be reimbursed, primary care providers must submit current dental terminology (CDT) code D1206 on a physician claim form.
In addition, Smiles for Life provides online education about the principles of oral health screening by primary care providers and offers free CME credit for the course.
