CMS adds oral health initiative to strategic plan

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services recently updated its strategic plan to include an oral health initiative.

The strategic plan includes 13 cross-cutting initiatives to support the organization's goals within its strategic pillars. The strategic pillars include advancing equity, expanding access, engaging partners, driving innovation, protecting programs and fostering excellence.  

Under the new oral health cross cutting initiative, CMS said it will consider opportunities to expand coverage access using existing authorities and health plan flexibilities. The organization said it plans to partner with states, health plans and healthcare providers to find opportunities.
