Ask Congress to Support Insurance Coverage for Patients with Craniofacial Anomalies
Please ask Congress to support the Ensuring Lasting Smiles Act (S.560/H.R.1379), bipartisan legislation to ensure patients with congenital craniofacial anomalies have the necessary coverage to restore their ability to function.
One in every 33 children in the United States is born with a congenital anomaly that affects the way they look, develop, or function. Most health plans provide coverage for the surgical treatment of congenital anomalies, and many states require insurers to provide coverage of any health services related to congenital anomalies. Despite this, health plans often deny claims and appeals for oral- or dental-related procedures - like orthodontia and implants - which are often crucial to the overall success of treatment, claiming these services are cosmetic or covered by dental plans.
If enacted, the Ensuring Lasting Smiles Act (ELSA) would require health insurers, including ERISA plans, to cover medically necessary services, including dental treatment, for patients with congenital anomalies.
In February, members of Congress from both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate came together on a bipartisan basis to introduce the Ensuring Lasting Smiles Act. The legislation has since gained the support of more than 200 cosponsors in the House and over half of the Senate.
We need your help to push this legislation through Congress and have it signed into law.
