A Medicare Dental Benefit: No Longer Just a Pipe Dream
National Association of Dental Plans
Washington, D.C., principal Michael Adelberg will present “A Medicare Dental Benefit: No Longer Just a Pipe Dream” at the September 22, 2020, CONVERGE 2020 sponsored by the National Association of Dental Plans. The COVID-19 emergency and recession are increasing the odds of a major health care reform push in 2021, and four recent bills include a Medicare dental benefit.
Mike Adelberg, a former senior federal official who helped implement the Affordable Care Act and Medicare Part D, will discuss the potential for a Medicare dental benefit, the structure of the dental benefit in current congressional bills and how it might be structured to leverage best practices from the private sector. He also will consider the potential impact of a Medicare dental benefit on dental plans that participate in Medicare Advantage and offer standalone dental plans to the senior market.
