In January, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final regulation for CY 2022 Medicare and Medicaid Programs, which covers a variety of policies in these programs. One noteworthy item is a finalized amendment to 42 CFR § 422.220, which will allow Medicare Advantage (MA) supplemental benefits to reimburse providers that have opted out of Medicare.

This could mean that those dentists who responded to 2016-17 requirements (which were rescinded in 2018) to enroll in Medicare by opting out can participate in MA dental supplemental benefit networks.

The final regulation is available online here.
