Medicare Dental Bill Introduced

On January 4, Senator Ben Cardin from Maryland introduced S.22, the Medicare Dental Benefit Act of 2019 — a bill that, if enacted, would allow older adults and persons with disabilities to access their oral healthcare as they do their medical care — through Medicare. The American Dental Hygienists’ Association endorses the expansion of programs that appropriate funding for comprehensive, evidence-based oral health care. ADHA joins other national stakeholders in the effort to create an oral health care benefit for Medicare beneficiaries.
