Dental Benefits Under Healthcare Reform

Current State Issues: MA kicks it all off

Governor Mit Romney signs universal coverage in 06

Employer and individual mandates; establishes large state agency “the connector” to coordinate private and tax-supported plans with hospitals, physician groups and insurers; establishes rules, builds marketplace where conforming products matched with purchasers.

Signaled that Democrats and Republicans can compromise on healthcare if they put their hearts and minds to it

Inspired much of CA proposed reforms and processes (more later)

Jury still out on impacts to dental; “crowd out” remains big concern; dental is option rather than mandate for commercial marketplace. Money the issue. Policymakers would like to see dental included eventually
