CONCORD – Today, the Senate Health and Human Services Committee unanimously passed SB 150, Senator Cindy Rosenwald’s (D-Nashua) bill to establish a dental benefit under the state Medicaid program.
After the vote, Senator Cindy Rosenwald (D-Nashua) issued the following statement:
“It is long past time that we provide dental benefits to the over 120,000 Granite Staters who rely on Medicaid for their health care. The economic and social benefits of preventative dental care cannot be understated for both the individuals receiving care and long term state savings in long term dental-related health care. I thank my colleagues for their continued bipartisan support of this crucial legislation.”
