JADA March 2020

Background. The dependent coverage mandate policy of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act led to spillover increases in private dental coverage among affected young adults. The authors investigate whether such gains were widely shared across racial or ethnic groups and shared across income levels. The authors further explore the relationship between dental coverage and dental services use stratified by race or ethnicity and income using the mandate as a natural experiment.

Key Words. Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act; dental insurance; oral health care use; dependent coverage mandate.
