Dr Dental- Federal legislation would bar dental, vision plans from setting fees for non-covered services

The Dental and Optometric Care Access Act was reintroduced in the U.S. House of Representatives July 15, proposing federal legislation that would prohibit dental and vision plans from setting fees for noncovered services.

The bill, H.R. 3762, also called the DOC Access Act, is supported by the ADA and American Optometric Association.

Rep. Dave Loebsack, D-Iowa, reintroduced H.R. 3762. The legislation would prohibit all federally regulated plans from mandating that dentists discount their normal fee when the fee is for a service not covered by the plan. The bill also would also prohibit plans from imposing restrictions on medical plan participation and setting limits on a doctor’s choice of lab.
