Mass. dental cuts take effect July 1

Adults in Massachusetts on MassHealth and Commonwealth Care insurance will no longer be covered for the cost of filling cavities or other restorative dental work as a result of a $30 million cut in the state budget, according to a news story in the Cape Cod Times.

The change takes effect July 1. Patients on these subsidized insurance programs will lose coverage for root canals, crowns, treatment of gum disease, and prosthetics, according to the story.
