32 Miss. Code. R. § 22-3.7 - DENTAL SERVICES/CONSULTATION
Current through December 27, 2021
For cases involving dental care, oral surgery, or orthodontic services, the counselor must adhere to the following instructions:
A dental consultation (Dental Form-1) form is used to ensure programmatic accountability in the provision of planned dental services. This form will be completed for all VR clients for whom employment is the anticipated outcome and it appears the desired vocational goal cannot be achieved without essential dental services.
Section 1 When there is a need for planned dental services, the VR counselor will complete Section 1 of the dental consultation form. The dental consultation form, a legible copy of the general dental examination form, which includes a proposed treatment plan, and supporting information (radiographic X-rays, cost estimate, etc.) should be sent to the district manager for review.
Section 2 Once approved by the district manager, the form and attachments (radiographic X-rays, dental cost, dental treatment plan, etc.) should be submitted to the state program coordinator for dental services for review; the state program coordinator will present the request to the state dental consultant for review.
Section 3 After the state dental consultant has reviewed and taken appropriate action on the request, the information will be returned to the state program coordinator for dental services. The program coordinator will forward the information back to the counselor.
Dental services for a primary or secondary disability must not be promised, planned, or provided prior to review by the district manager and treatment recommendations obtained from the state dental consultant. If dental services are being requested even as a secondary condition, do not complete a certificate of eligibility prior to the completion of the review process.
Questions regarding this process should be discussed with the district manager.
