Minnesota currently ranks last – 50th of the 50 states – when it comes to Medicaid payment rate for pediatric dental services, with a rate of 26.7%. Unfortunately, we’re not doing much better when it comes to helping adults access dental care. Minnesota is near the bottom – fourth worst – in the payment rate for adult dental services (27.1%). Because of the low payment rate, many dental clinics, especially small clinics and clinics in Greater Minnesota, cannot afford to serve low-income patients, contributing to our state’s access crisis where low-income patients with serious dental problems cannot get the treatment they need.
