A House panel Tuesday rejected a proposal to revamp the Medicaid program's system of providing dental services to children.

The House Health Innovation Subcommittee deadlocked 6-6 on the proposal (HB 601), filed by Rep. MaryLynn Magar, R-Tequesta. A tie kills a bill. 

Under the state's new Medicaid managed-care system, HMOs and other types of managed-care plans are responsible for providing dental services to children.
