Maine Opening Up Swifter Access To Dental Care For Children

AUGUSTA, Maine - Children will have swifter access to dental care under a proposal approved by the Maine Legislature. The Maine Senate enacted the proposal from Democratic Sen. Heather Sanborn on Tuesday. It would prohibit insurance plans from implementing waiting periods before they will cover tooth decay treatment in children.

The bill has been sent to Democratic Gov. Janet Mills, who can sign it, veto it or let it become law without signature.
