In his state budget, Governor Gavin Newsom proposes eliminating Dental Managed Care from some of the state’s most underserved and low-income communities. In Sacramento and Los Angeles counties, Dental Managed Careworks for kids and their families who need a fully integrated dental benefit plan that puts beneficiaries at the center of care.
This group of vulnerable children are at risk of losing their access to quality dental care. That’s why local health clinics, non-profit organizations, the Teamsters, and school districts across the counties oppose elimination of theprogram.
Why do advocates on the ground in Sacramento and Los Angeles Counties support Dental Managed Care? It’s simple: Despite what the Department of Health Care Services proclaims, the program is making real change in underserved and low-income communities.

The Fee-for-Service program does not provide the same benefits.
