Justice In Aging

Justice In Aging‘s new issue brief, Adding a Dental Benefit to Medicare: Addressing Oral Health Inequity Based on Disability , spotlights how adding a dental benefit to Medicare would reduce disparities in access to care and oral health outcomes for adults with disabilities under 65. The brief also examines how the addition of a dental benefit would help to reduce those disparities, the resulting oral health inequity, and contains additional policy proposals to address systemic barriers people with disabilities face in trying to access oral health care.
