Dental Services: Information on Coverage, Payments, and Fee Variation
Katherine Iritani (au)
High rates of dental disease remain prevalent across the nation, especially in vulnerable and underserved populations. Over 42% of adults with tooth or mouth problems did not see a dentist in 2008 because they did not have dental insurance and could not afford the out-of-pocket payments, and in 2011, 4 million children did not obtain needed dental care because their families could not afford it. In 2011, the Institute of Medicine reported that there is strong evidence that dental coverage is positively tied to access to and use of oral health care. For families without dental coverage, federally funded health centers may offer an affordable dental care option. Health centers are required to offer sliding fee schedules with discounts of up to 100% for many low-income patients. This report describes (1) trends in coverage for, and use of, dental services; (2) trends in payments by individuals and other payers for dental services; and (3) the extent to which dental fees vary between and within selected communities across the nation. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
