MOBILE Health Care Act Passes Congress

On September 29, the House of Representatives passed the Maximizing Outcomes through Better Investments in Lifesaving Equipment (MOBILE) Health Care Act. This bipartisan legislation supported by the ADA would give community health centers more flexibility in using New Access Points grants for mobile health care units. As an organization dedicated to improving the oral health of the public, the ADA recognizes the critical role that mobile dental units play in bringing care to underserved areas and populations and promoting oral health equity. The legislation also passed the Senate earlier this month and now awaits the President’s signature.
