AAOMS Advocates for ‘Ensuring Lasting Smile Act’

Legislation supported by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons has been introduced to Congress to ensure patients with congenital craniofacial anomalies receive treatment in a timely manner. The Ensuring Lasting Smile Act will require private and individual health insurance plans to cover “medically necessary services resulting from birth defects.”

Under the legislation (S 560/ HR 1379), treatments could include adjunctive dental, orthodontic, or prosthodontics support. For more information about The Ensuring Lasting Smile Act, visit https://bit.ly/2EHH17Z or https://bit.ly/2SG7M1u
