AlohaCare to provide dental coverage to Medicaid members

Earlier this week, AlohaCare announced that it has selected Hawaii Dental Service (HDS) to administer basic dental services at no cost to its adult Medicaid members beginning January 1, 2021. Through HDS, adult AlohaCare Medicaid members will receive diagnostic, preventive and basic dental services. Covered dental benefits will include an annual exam, twice-a-year cleanings, a full mouth x-ray, two fluoride treatments, and a filling or non-emergency extraction.
