Wellcare woes

August 27, 2007

Valdosta - Wellcare of Georgia says dentists will be made available to the nearly 71 thousand children who will be affected by their coverage switch.

Wellcare is terminating their contract with Kool Smiles General Dentistry for Kids by the end of the month after complaints of poor care.

The company only treats children on Medicaid or Peach Care.

They say they've lined up more than 90 other dentists within five miles of Kool Smiles offices that will welcome the new patients and accept their plans.

Kool Smiles has ten offices in Georgia including one in Valdosta.
