        This testimony examines the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS') oversight of oral health care for children from families with low incomes who are enrolled in Medicaid. The testimony is based on the following: (1) reports that the Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued from 2000 to 2003; (2) interviews conducted in April 2007 with officials from CMS, state Medicaid programs (California, Illinois, Minnesota, New York, and Washington), and national health associations; and (3) a review of literature provided by officials from CMS and other organizations. The testimony addresses the data that CMS requires states to submit on the provision of Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Treatment (EPSDT) oral health services and the extent to which the data are sufficient for CMS oversight of the provision of these services. Background information on EPSDT services and Medicaid delivery and financing, concluding observations, contacts, and related GAO products are included.
