WEBINAR: Oral Health Coverage for Low-Income Older Adults

By January 18, 2018Health Care, WEBINAR

When: Thursday, February 15, 2018 11:00 a.m. PT/ 2:00 p.m. ET.

As of January 1, 2018, dental benefits were fully restored to adult Medi-Cal recipients. Restoration means that older adults will again have access to gum treatment, root canals on back teeth, and partial dentures. This is a big win for older adults and their overall health. This webinar, Oral Health Coverage for Low-Income Older Adults, provides an overview of the restoration of benefits and Denti-Cal coverage more broadly. The webinar also covers other dental coverage options available to older adults, how different coverage options work together, and barriers older adults face in accessing dental care.

The webinar covers:

  • Denti-Cal coverage – including newly restored benefits
  • Other dental coverage options – Medicare Advantage, MediGap, Cal
  • MediConnect, etc.
  • Barriers to care

Who should participate:
Aging and legal advocates, community-based providers, and others wanting to learn more about California’s oral health coverage for older adults.

Amber Christ, Justice in Aging

The webinar took place on Thursday, February 15, 2018 11:00 a.m. PT/ 2:00 p.m. ET.
