Dental Anesthesia and Hospitalization Requirements Revised

On March 1, 2018, Governor Daugaard signed HB 1205 into law. This law requires plans to cover dental procedure anesthesia and access to a hospital or ambulatory care center for plan participants that are children younger than age five or individuals who are severely disabled, suffering from developmental disabilities, or have other medical conditions that place plan participants at serious medical risk. Issuers can require that plan participants obtain prior authorization for such services in the same way that prior authorization is required for other covered conditions.
