The American Dental Association is pleased to announce that Congress has just passed H.R. 5771, the Tax Increase Prevention Act of 2014 which has extended the Section 179 expensing tax provision for 2014. ADA has worked hard to ensure passage of this bill, which will allow small businesses to write off up to $500,000 of capital investment in 2014. ADA members though ADA.org/Engage sent over 8,500 emails to Congress in the last month urging lawmakers to extend this important provision.

The ADA's Action for Dental Health Medicaid Initiative has two ultimate goals: increase the number of dentists participating in Medicaid and the number of dental services provided to the Medicaid patient population.
Earlier this year, the ADA released the 2015 version of the Current Dental Terminology (CDT) codes. These new CDT code changes will go into effect January 1, 2015 and include several code changes. Due to the large number of code changes, please make sure to verify that the new procedure codes are covered under a patient’s dental plan and whether documentation is required.
