Coverage and Benefits
There is a direct correlation between dental benefit coverage and the likelihood that someone will seek and receive dental care. That is why the ADA is working with lawmakers, regulators, and others to improve the way dental care is financed and administered, both publicly and privately.
Flexible Spending Arrangements (FSAs)
The ADA is committed to expanding and enhancing the way consumers can use pre-tax dollars to pay for dental care and other dental-related items not covered by insurance.
