An Act To Restore MassHealth Adult Dental Benefits

In 2010, adult dental care benefits for people in MassHealth were significantly cut. Our Oral Health Advocacy Task Force has been working hard to restore coverage. Services have been restored piecemeal, year by year, with dentures being the latest service added, in May 2015. Currently, the only oral health services covered for adult MassHealth members are fillings, cleanings, extractions, and now, dentures. HCFA supports legislation to restore full oral health benefits cut from MassHealth, our Medicaid program.
