Tennessee Congressman Introduces New Dental Care Act

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) – Congressman Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) on February 6 introduced the Medicare Medically Necessary Dental Care Act.

The act would provide essential dental care for the 47 percent of Medicare beneficiaries who are currently ineligible for dental coverage.

“Without proper attention, dental problems can become serious medical problems, especially when combined with other health concerns,” said Congressman Cohen. “I am pleased that the Biden administration has begun to address this issue, and I hope that this legislation can codify these changes and encourage a more comprehensive approach to providing dental care to all Medicare beneficiaries who qualify.”

The Medicare Act on Medically Necessary Dental Care under Medicare Part B provides coverage for medically necessary medical procedures, including treatment for patients requiring prosthetic heart valve replacement and organ transplants, or diagnoses of head or neck cancer, lymphoma, and leukemia. covers
