Key Issues

McCarran–Ferguson Act

The ADA is calling on Congress to repeal parts of the McCarran-Ferguson Act of 1945, which permits state-regulated health insurers to ignore some of the competitive rules (i.e., federal antitrust laws) that apply to every other business in the United States.

 

Higher Education Issues

The ADA advocates on higher education issues to ensure that dental students and new dentists receive the best education, tuition financing, and repayment options available.

 

Ensuring Lasting Smiles Act

The causes of the dental health crisis are varied and complex. It is the ADA’s goal to help all Americans attain their best oral health. Action for Dental Health aims to prevent dental disease before it starts and reduce the proportion of adults and children with untreated dental disease.
