2 federal government, policy updates for dentists to know

Here are two federal updates affecting dentistry since Sept. 7:

  1. Sen. Maggie Hassan and Sen. Roger Marshall introduced legislation that would provide more affordable dental care options in states that do not have a state-run health insurance marketplace. The proposed bill would allow consumers in states without a state-run marketplace to purchase standalone dental plans. 
  2. The American Dental Association is supporting the VET CARE Act of 2023, which would increase funding and resources for the Department of Veterans Affairs Dentistry. The bill would also establish administrative support for VA dentists who provide care to veterans and also create a pilot program for provisional dental care to certain veterans.
