The American Dental Association has released the first of a series of articles intended to provide answers to questions about the Affordable Care Act (ACA). ADA President Dr. Robert Feiella announced the question and answer format, saying in a statement:
“The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has the potential to reshape health care in America. The ADA was there in 2009 when ‘health care reform’ consisted of just a few proposals, and we have remained involved in the legislative process and, more recently, the implementation phase. The Association’s primary focus has been ACA’s potential effects on dentistry and the delivery of dental services to our patients.”

The first Q&A Report covers some of the basic provisions of the ACA along with implementation concerns.
