Affordable Care Act does not cover dentistry for adults
Updated: 11/20/2012 6:57:49 PM

Affordable Care Act does not cover dentistry for adults  People who don't have dental insurance may be hoping that the new healthcare reform plan will provide them with the care they need. However, according to a recent article published in the Washington Post, for the most part the new health insurance plans that will become available in 2014 will not cover dental services for adults. This is why people should consider looking into discount dental plans to help them gain access to dentists.
The American Dental Association states what while more than 3 million American children will now be able to see a dentist because of the Affordable Care Act, there is nothing that would require dental services for adults to be covered.

The American Dental Education Association states that, in 2003, the number of Americans without dental insurance was more than 2.5 times the number lacking medical insurance.

It's important for people to be able to have access to a dentist for an affordable price. If this cannot be achieved through the new healthcare law, uninsured adults should look into discount dental plans.
