Building a brighter future

Building a Brighter Future

  • At Methodist Healthcare Ministries (MHM), we believe the best way to nurture the youngest among us is to reach out to the communities they call home. That’s why we fund and operate clinics in under-served neighborhoods and schools. It’s why we offer programs designed to help parents influence their children’s lives in positive ways. And it’s the reason we sponsor Wesley Nurses, who act as health and wellness advocates for the communities.

TEXAS IS ONE OF FEW SCHIP THAT DOES NOT OFFER DENTAL

Texas experienced the largest SCHIP enrollment decline in

the nation between June 2003 and December 2003.

500,000 children lost dental benefits in 2003.

"Nationally, One-half of all CHIP enrollment declines

occurred in Texas"

Children s oral health under medicaid

Children’s Oral Health Under Medicaid

  • States are required to provide the EPSDT (Early Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment) benefit to all Medicaid-eligible children. (Source: Center for Policy Alternatives, 1999)

  • Nationally, only 20% of all eligible children receive this benefit each year.

  • (Source: Center for Policy Alternatives, 2003)


States with best practices

States with Best Practices

  • Dental participation in Medicaid is a barrier nationwide (only 16% of dentists participate).

  • Vermont has 77% participation due to streamlining of claims processing.

  • Vermont also allocated additional funds to increase Medicaidreimbursement rates for participating dentists by 17%.

States with best practices1

States with Best Practices

  • A dental professional shortage is a barrier to care nationwide.

  • Several states recently enacted bills to expand the scope of practice for dental hygienists (including dental screenings for children).

  • These states include Nevada, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island.

States with best practices2

States with Best Practices

  • Other strategies include creating school-based dental clinics and forgiving loans for new dentists.

  • These and the other reforms listed show the commitment and creativity of the states in dealing with the problem.

  • Texas is not one of these states.

RESTORE CHIP NOW!

Dear Legislative Budget Board Member,

The 78th Legislature made many deep, painful cuts to programs that serve Texas’ poor, and among the worst were the reductions in the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

• More than 24% of Texas children are uninsured. Texas ranks 50th, the worst nationally.

• There is OVER $500 million now that can be transferred to CHIP through a budget executive order by the Legislative Budget Board. They will meet in October.

• It would take $93 million to restore the state Legislative cuts from CHIP for the current biennium.

• Texas will forfeit more than $256 million in federal CHIP matching funds if the program is not restored.

I urge you to Restore CHIP now!
