ADA: Affordable Care Act dental impact projections
from American Dental Association
Millions more children will have dental coverage in 2014 under the Affordable Care Act, according to an Association statement on the U.S. Supreme Court's June 28 ruling. But any increase in dental Medicaid coverage of adults is likely "to be minimal." A 2011 ADA House of Delegates resolution called for a study of the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (or ACA) and the impact of projected marketplace changes on the dental profession. "The reports should be ready in the next few weeks, allowing the ADA to use actuarially-supported projections to help us create a more meaningful dental impact projection," said the July 12 statement.
