A new blog post about oral health and the impact of the MassHealth dental cuts was posted at WBUR’s CommonHealth blog today. The post focuses on how individuals are being impacted by these cuts by highlighting the stories of three callers who called HCFA’s HelpLine when they had trouble accessing care.

The blog also explains that cutting adult dental benefits is a step backwards for health reform in the Commonwealth. “Massachusetts led the way toward getting more people covered by health insurance,” it begins, “but recently it took a notable step in the other direction.” The post ends with our call for the allocation of FMAP funds to restore dental care.
