LIBERTY Dental Plan of Illinois
LIBERTY Dental Plan has long term national experience with both pediatric and adult Medicaid benefits in the states of California, Florida, Illinois, and Texas. We have developed and do maintain appropriate statewide Medicaid dental provider networks that include working with Rural, Community and FQHC dental community clinic organizations.
LIBERTY’s government dental program relationship in Illinois began with the administration of Medicare, Duals, SPDs and a Medicaid Value-add benefit program in partnership with Meridian Health Plan of Illinois. LIBERTY then expanded its program offerings with Harmony Health Plan of Illinois’ and a Medicaid Value-add benefit program. As of 2014, LIBERTY was selected by Harmony and Meridian to administer the statewide expansion of Medicaid Managed Care for the FHP/ACA and ICP programs.
