CMS final rule expands Medicare medically necessary dental coverage

Medicare will begin covering dental services deemed medically necessary for patients with certain conditions beginning Jan. 1, according to a final rule released by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, ADA News reported. The final rule includes coverage for dental care before procedures such as organ transplants, cardiac valve replacement and valvuloplasty, which aligns with the ADA's recommendations in comments the ADA shared with the agency in September. The CMS also emphasized that the statutory definition of a physician includes dentists. The regulation does not include dental coverage for patients with diabetes, but the CMS will implement an annual review process to decide whether to include additional services under the Medicare medically necessary benefit.

Below is the video of our GKAS Event in May
at the Bayview Ave. School in Freeport

  • GKAS 2022 at the Bayview Ave. School Video Our 2022 GKAS event was held at the Bayview Ave. School of Arts & Science in Freeport, NY. This was our first "in-school" event in the 19 year history of our program as well as the first time we did a combined indoor and outdoor event. The 550 students there received free dental exams, fluoride treatments, sealants, oral hygiene instructions and nutrition education by our 100 volunteers. The Lion’s Club of Long Beach also provided free eye exams. We thank our wonderful Volunteers as well as Dr. Mary Garguilo, Principal of the Bayview Ave. School, Mr. Stanley Bergman, CEO of Henry Schein, Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine, Northwell Health, the New York State Dental Foundation, Sports Depot, The Long Beach Lion's Club, Fidelis Care, Liberty Dental, and Vivo Entertainment for their help in making this day possible as well as Michael Krien of Patkin Photography for putting together this wonderful video.
