Time: January 7, 2014 from 2pm to 3:30pm
Organized By: Cindy Thomas
In 2009, the CHIP Reauthorization Act authorized that federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) and look-alikes may contract with private dentists to provide dental services to health center patients in the dentists’ private offices. While much of the FQHC community is aware of the concept, private dentist contracting has not been widely adopted thus far, and there is a lack of knowledge on the practicalities of implementing this approach. This webinar provides an overview of contracting practice, discusses the parameters to be negotiated, shares examples of contracts and highlights successes and challenges from the actual FQHCs.
Learning Objectives: By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to: (*please note that learning objectives should be concrete/tangible and able to be measured)
1. Participants will understand how the process of contracting with a private practice provider should work.
2. Participants will understand what items should be included in an agreement to be used when contracting
with a private practice provider.
3. Participants will identify strategies to implement contracting with private practice dentists at FQHCs.
Dental CEU credits will be available for this webinar.
