Children's Dental Health: Colorado
Making Coverage Matter
Between 2007 and 2009, access to dental care for children enrolled in Medicaid grew by 6 percentage points. However, the proportion of the state's population receiving optimally fluoridated water decreased slightly, from 73.6 to 70.6 percent. And Medicaid payment rates slid from 58.3 percent of dentists' median fees to 51.1 percent.
