“Oral Healthcare for Nursing Home Residents; Compliance, Funding and Best Practices”
The ADA and AMDA advocate for improved oral healthcare in the SNF setting. Congress (CFR 483.55) and Texas (TAC 40.19.1401), mandate the SNF role regarding policies, providing for and helping residents with funding of Dental Services including emergency, routine, dentures, and annual examinations. Most of these services are available without cost to the facilities, families or patients through IME and/or insurance providers. A review of best practices and case studies will benefit SNFs.
Develop written policies fulling State and Federal regulations regarding Dental Services.
Understand the funding sources and how to access them.
Provide a comprehensive medically appropriate oral healthcare plan for all residents.
