The Washington Oral Health Foundation (WOHF) has supported school nurses for years through the Adopt-a-School program, which links dental offices with local schools to provide emergency care to students who lack access to care or a dental home.
Those who have been tracking the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and applicable state laws have looked to 2014 as a pivotal year, when many provisions of health care reform will begin impacting the general public. This upcoming year will bring significant changes to health care; some of these changes will be uniform across the country, while others will be unique to Washington state.
Let The Source be your go to guide for navigating the Affordable Care Act. WSDA has created "The Affordable Care Act and You" which is a comprehensive look at the changes brought about by health care reform. Intended to be a thorough overview of the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, WSDA has created over 40 questions and answers that we hope will help you navigate the changes that lie ahead. Questions were divided into three distinct sections covering how the ACA will affect you as an individual, an employer and as a provider of dental care.
