In an incredible victory, the FY21 Conference Budget included a line item restoring full MassHealth adult dental coverage back to the same level of coverage before significant cuts were made in 2010! The line item included $19 million of funding. Unfortunately, the Governor vetoed this provision. We need your help to restore it.
See the action alert from Health Care for All, below, asking you to contact your state senator to ask for their support for Amendment #216, which would restore the MassHealth adult dental program and add coverage for root canals and crowns.
Please also ask your state senator to support Amendment #218, sponsored by Senator Comerford, which would provide temporary relief from Medicaid estate recovery for surviving family members based on the practical difficulties created for them by the COVID-19 emergency.
