ACA Basics

ACALogoNow that the Affordable Care Act is in effect, the AAPD is collecting information on the types (embedded or stand-alone) of dental plans in your state, the new children you are seeing as a result of the ACA, your response to participating in the new exchange plans and your questions regarding the ACA. AAPD would love to hear about your experiences, your patients’ experiences and everything in between. Please share your stories with us so that we can gather information on how the various-run state exchanges are performing. We hope that gathering this information will help us identify issues that will, in turn, be used to help you and your patients. For additional information, see links below or contact AAPD Dental Benefits Manager Mary Essling at messling@aapd.org or (312) 337-2169.
