Children’s Services Handbook : 4 Texas Health Steps (THSteps) Dental : 4.2 Services, Benefits, Limitations, and Prior Authorization : 4.2.5 ICF-IID Dental Services

4.2.5
ICF-IID dental services are mandated by Medicaid. Reimbursement is provided for treatment of dental problems for Medicaid-eligible residents of ICF-IID facilities who are 21 years of age and older. Residents of ICF-IID facilities who are 20 years of age and younger receive services through the regular THSteps Program. Eligibility for ICF-IID services is determined by DADS.
Procedure codes that do not have a CCP designation in the Limitations column of the dental fee schedule may be submitted in a routine manner for ICF-IID clients. These procedures must be documented as medically necessary and appropriate. ICF-IID clients are not subject to periodicity for preventive care. For procedure codes that have a CCP designation, a provider may request authorization with documentation or provide documentation on the submitted claim.
