Return to DTI Homepage
The Local Dental Pilot Projects (LDPP) will address Domains 1-3 through local pilot programs aimed at specific demographics. The goals are to: address one or more of the three domains through alternative programs, potentially using strategies focused on rural areas, including local case management initiatives and education partnerships.
DHCS will solicit proposals once at the beginning of the demonstration and shall review, approve, and make payments for LDPPs in accordance with the requirements stipulated in the Medi-Cal 2020 Waiver. A maximum of 15 LDPPs shall be approved.
DHCS will invite providers to submit proposals for pilots. Upon approval and successful completion of the pilots, providers will receive incentive payments. The LDPP agreements reflect the requirements described in the Medi-Cal 2020 Special Terms and Conditions, which include the identification of the lead and participating entities, target populations, collaboration plans, services and care coordination, pilot project innovations, interventions and/or strategies, data sharing, monitoring and reporting, financing structure, funding request, and budget for the LDPP. DHCS reviewed the application process during a webinar on June 14, 2016. The deadline for submitting the LDPP application has passed on September 30, 2016.
