In this webinar, HPI discussed the findings in a white paper co-authored with Community Catalyst and Families USA (PDF). The report delves into the cost of adding comprehensive adult dental benefits in state Medicaid programs that currently lack them, taking into account health care cost savings that would accrue if patients had access to routine dental care.
