1.2 Provider Eligibility and Training

Certification of Training Completion

When an EPSDT medical provider successfully completes this course, Maryland’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Office of Oral Health, will notify the Maryland Medicaid Program and Scion, the state's Medicaid dental third-party administrator, that the provider has completed the course. The Office of Oral Health will maintain a list of all EPSDT medical providers who have successfully completed the course. Certification of successful completion of the course will be provided after all of the post-tests are completed. Each provider is responsible for keeping the certificate of training completion. The certificate must be presented upon request of the Maryland Medicaid Program.

After the Maryland Medicaid Program has verified the provider’s EPSDT certification and confirmed that all group or individual personal identifiers are active and accurate, Scion will send the medical provider a welcome letter describing the reimbursement process. The welcome letter will provide a unique username and password, which will allow the medical provider to submit claims online for reimbursement.
