Gov. Pat Quinn, Illinois Lawmakers Hit for “Foolish” Illinois Medicaid Dental Care Cuts

(Chicago) – Are teeth vital to health? Vital Bridges Center on Chronic Care/Heartland Health Outreach says healthy teeth are vital to maintaining health and containing health care costs.

That’s why Illinois Medicaid cuts to dental care services are “penny wise and pound foolish,” says Vital Bridges Healthcare Strategist Deborah Hinde, criticizing the Illinois General Assembly and Governor Pat Quinn‘s decision to eliminate all but emergency dental care service for Illinois adults on Medicaid.

  1. When it comes to health I don’t think there’s a better reason why you should cut off the allotted budget especially on the dental care services cause even the Rock hill dentist I know thinks it really is a very ridiculous idea. We should actually pay more attention to it, right?
