SC Medicaid dentist fees to be cut 3%

By staff writers

June 9, 2011 -- Medicaid of South Carolina will reduce dentist fees by 3%, effective for services provided on or after July 8, according to a public notice issued by the agency. The reduction is in addition to a 3% reduction enacted on April 8.
