Wis. Admin. Code Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System § UWS 24.025 - Medical assistance and badger care requirements for dental hygienists

Current through November 29, 2021

(1) In addition to conforming to s. UWS 24.02(1r), the dental hygienist's employer shall agree to the following:
(a) In year 1 of the dental hygienist's agreement with the Board of Regents, his or her employer shall provide dental services to at least 50 unduplicated medical assistance or badger care recipients, not to fall below a minimum of $8,000 in claims paid.
(b) In year 2 of the dental hygienist's agreement with the Board of Regents, his or her employer shall provide dental services to at least 70 unduplicated medical assistance or badger care recipients, not to fall below a minimum of $11,000 in claims paid.
(c) In year 3 of the dental hygienist's agreement with the Board of Regents, his or her employer shall provide dental services to at least 90 unduplicated medical assistance or badger care recipients, not to fall below a minimum of $15,000 in claims paid.
(2) In this section, "unduplicated" means that a recipient may only be counted once for the year regardless of the number of visits during the year.
(3) The Board of Regents may waive the requirements of sub. (1) on a case-by-case and year-to-year basis upon an administrative review that shows the employer for whom the dental hygienist works made a significant effort to achieve the targets contained in sub. (1) and that the employer has credible plans, as determined by the Board of Regents, to meet the following year's targets, if applicable. If, in the opinion of the Board of Regents, the employer did not make a significant effort nor has credible plans to meet future targets as established in sub. (1), the dental hygienist may be required to repay any monies paid to the hygienist by the Board of Regents without additional penalties and may not receive additional loan assistance for subsequent periods.
