CE Course - Dental Management of Medically Compromised Patients

Thank you to all who attended our CE courses on Maui (Nov. 5), Hilo (Nov. 6), and Oahu (Nov. 07). We enjoyed seeing everyone and look forward to seeing you all at our next event.

Hawaii Excise Tax Change for the FED 87, FED 117 HMO, and FED 27 Plans:

LSV is changing from a manual monthly process for tax reimbursement to a systematic calculation, which will be for both paper and electronic claims. Instead of this process being done monthly, it will now be processed on each claim at the time of submission, and reported as a line item on each EOB as code D9985. The implementation will take effect on November 22, 2019. GET is covered for participating providers only. All nonprofit groups are excluded.

►Keep on your Radar: Dentist & Dental Hygienist Licenses - Renewal applications start November 4.

Dental Provider licenses expire December 31, 2019. Failure to renew by the deadline listed will result in the forfeiture of your license which may result in the termination of your participation with HMSA Dental. We highly encourage you to create a “MYPVL” account on the Hawaii.gov website to expedite this process. More information on account set up and Renewal FAQ’s can be found here: https://cca.hawaii.gov/pvl/mypvl-and-renewal-faqs/
