The ADA is backing a federal bill to stop dental benefit plans from dictating rates that dentists must charge for services not covered under a patient’s plan.
H.R. 5000 would stop this practice at the national level and would apply to all ERISA or employer self-insured plans. Other provisions in the bill address coordination of benefits, assignment of benefits, downcoding by insurers, equal payment for participating and non participating providers, and other related insurer practices.
Please ask your federal Representative to support H.R. 5000 today! Click here to take action.
