Access to Care
Illinois Medicaid includes dental benefits for adults and children. DentaQuest of Illinois has been the dental administrator for the HFS fee for service dental program since 1999. Dentists interested in providing care to this population are required to enroll in Illinois Medicaid Program Advanced Cloud Technology (IMPACT) prior to submitting claims in order to receive reimbursement. Updated fee schedules for the HFS fee for service dental program can be found here.
