Call to Action: Put Teeth in Medicare
Millions of seniors across the country lack access for routine preventive and restorative oral health care because Medicare excludes coverage for these services. Adding oral health coverage to Medicare Part B is a commonsense solution to ensure Medicare enrollees have access to oral health care – a critical component of overall health.
ADHA is calling on all dental hygienists to contact their congressional representative and urge them to support H.R. 4311 to provide oral health coverage within Medicare. You may contact your member of congress HERE. Reaching out to your representative takes just 1-2 minutes.
