Dental providers are urged to support a November Massachusetts statewide ballot initiative that will require dental insurance carriers to spend at least 83% of premium dollars on patient care rather than on administrative costs, salaries and profits, ADA News reported.

In a Sept. 15 email to members, ADA President Cesar R. Sabates, D.D.S., said the ADA has committed $5 million to the Massachusetts Dental Care Providers for Better Dental Benefits campaign.

"The ADA is proud to join with the Massachusetts Dental Society to help support this measure, and we are asking for your support as well," Dr. Sabates said. "Please consider financially contributing to the campaign to support a 'yes' vote on Massachusetts Question 2. Why? Because if we win in Massachusetts, it will be a watershed moment for patients and dentistry, setting a precedent that could herald future change for dental insurance across the country. All dentists, dental team members and patients are the beneficiaries of this initiative. We are a dental family standing together to protect and advocate for our patients."

WSDA recently donated $10,000 to the campaign.
