developmental and intellectual disabilities.
Proposed law requires the La. Department of Health (LDH) to ensure that Medicaid coverage for
dental care is provided to all of the following persons:
(1) Each person of age 21 or older who is enrolled in any Medicaid waiver program for persons
with developmental or intellectual disabilities.
(2) Each Medicaid enrollee of age 21 or older who resides in a licensed intermediate care facility

Proposed law requires LDH to take all such actions as are necessary to make the coverage required
by proposed law available to all persons eligible for such coverage on or before July 1, 2022.
