Evaluating Medicare Dental Coverage Expansion Alternatives
There is a shortage of Medicaid insurance accepting dental practices in the United States, resulting in many beneficiaries not being able to receive dental care. The Federal government is considering expanding dental coverage to Medicare beneficiaries; however, this expansion could increase demand for public-insurance dental appointments with minimal increase in supply. Although the objective of dental coverage expansion is to increase access to care, these policy changes could instead exacerbate the inability of low-income beneficiaries to find dental appointments. This work evaluates multiple dental coverage expansion plans and their impact on Medicare and Medicaid beneficiary access to care.
