Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Medical Assistance Article of the Illinois Public Aid Code.

Provides that the Department shall establish, by rule, guidelines for participation by providers and set requirements for follow-up referral care based on the requirements established in the Dental Office Reference Manual published by the Department that establishes the requirements for dentists participating in the All Kids Dental School Program.
