Release: Budget Agreement Reached to Fully Restore Medi-Cal Adult Dental Benefits

CPEHN applauds the agreement announced late last night to fully restore adult dental benefits in the Medi-Cal program. Since 2009, Medi-Cal beneficiaries have gone without critical services, including partial dentures, root canals on back teeth and molars, and gum treatments. This has led to tooth decay, unnecessary extractions, job loss, and decreased quality of life for vulnerable seniors and low-income Californians.
