Boston, February 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – DentaQuest, the leading oral health care provider for 30 million Americans, today welcomes the Biden Administration’s decision to reopen the federal health market for three months, giving millions of Americans the opportunity to apply for coverage as the COVID-19 public health situation continues to rage.
While the Biden Administration notes that over 30 million Americans remain without health insurance, studies have shown that Americans are four times more likely to lack dental insurance. Reopening enrollment next week for three months will allow tens of thousands of Americans to log on to health.gov and apply for dental coverage along with medical coverage.
The following is a statement from DentaQuest President and CEO Steve Pollock:
“Reopening enrollment provides an opportunity for the tens of thousands of Americans who lack critical dental insurance to apply for coverage. In his announcement, President Biden acknowledges that people of color who have suffered disproportionately during this pandemic are more likely to be uninsured in America. The same is true with regard to dental insurance and the damage caused by lack of dental coverage is significant. We know that poor oral health can worsen overall health by increasing the risk of diabetic complications, stroke and other serious conditions. We welcome the President’s swift action to strengthen Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act and eliminate barriers to care. We encourage the administration to include the importance and availability of dental coverage in their PR campaign around the new open enrollment period. ”
