AAPD Supports Non-Covered Services Legislation in Florida and Ohio

In Nov. 2013 the AAPD sent letters to legislators in Florida and Ohio in support of pending non-covered services legislation. This legislation would prevent insurers from setting prices for services their plans do not even cover. The AAPD believes such insurance practices hurt access to care and interfere with the patient-doctor relationship. Laws preventing such practices have already been approved in 33 states. The pending non-covered services bills are strongly supported by the Florida Dental Association and the Ohio Dental Association, as well as the respective pediatric dental associations in each state.
