The Board will conduct a public hearing to consider a resolution revising the Dental Clinic Fee Schedule effective October 12. Approximately 67 percent of the visits to the adult portion of the County Dental Clinic are from self-pay clients without commercial or publicly funded insurance. The proposed fee structure is based upon a detailed evaluation of the cost of services and still provides for a sliding fee scale based upon the client’s income and family size. While increased revenue is anticipated, the use of a sliding-fee scale makes it difficult to estimate the amount.
The Board conducted the hearing and adopted the resolution.
