WSDA will be hosting a free webinar on Health Care Reform in Washington State on Friday, July 20 at noon. This webinar will count as one hour of continuing education. Bracken Killpack, the Director of Government Affairs at WSDA, will walk participants through the following topics:
Yesterday, the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act as constitutional. While the individual mandate was not determined to be constitutional under the commerce clause, the mandate was upheld under the constitutional provision which authorizes Congress to “lay and collect taxes.” Suffice to say, this all means implementation of the Washington State Exchanges and other health care reforms will continue as planned.
The Washington State Dental Association recently released paper, Strengthening the Dental Safety Net, calls for a multi-faceted approach to improving oral health in Washington that includes: education, prevention efforts, financing, and innovative delivery models.
