December 2023 Update: Improving Dental Coverage in Nebraska Medicaid

Oral health is key to overall health. Improved access to oral health care presents a wide range of benefits, from improving individual health to addressing racial disparities to supporting the economy. 

Even though some dental coverage is included for adults and children enrolled in Nebraska Medicaid, the majority of adults and a growing percentage of children are not utilizing their dental coverage. More can be done to ensure Nebraskans have access to the coverage and the care they need to stay healthy. 

Learn more about the current status of coverage and policy options to improve dental access in our 2023 Oral Health Update and 2022 Dental Policy Brief.
