DWP - Dentist

New DWP Documents

Delta Dental of Iowa has been administering the Dental Wellness Plan (DWP) since 2014. Recently, the Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS) and Iowa Medicaid Enterprise (IME) announced a modified program that will serve all current Medicaid adults on the current fee-for-service and DWP in one combined program.

Effective July 1, 2017, Delta Dental will have a new contract with DHS for the new Dental Wellness Plan. Due to contract and program changes, Delta Dental has updated the following documents and you can view these through the secure DWP Dentist Connection website (you will need a username and password to access these documents):

  • Notice of changes to  Participating Dentist’s Dental Wellness Plan Agreement and Incorporated Documents
  • Updated Uniform Regulations
  • Fee schedule
  • DWP Delta Dental contract
  • Overview of the modified DWP benefit design
