Ingrid needs two implants that would cost six to seven thousand dollars. That financial burden is not feasible for Ingrid, who lives on a fixed income and relies on Medicare.
Today, though her Medicare HMO does provide limited dental coverage, she has trouble affording her dental care. “I need to get two implants, but I would have to pay six to seven thousand dollars,” Ingrid exclaims. That kind of financial burden is not feasible for an individual living on a fixed income who relies on Medicare. Without the implants, she is unable to chew properly, which affects her physical health. Ingrid and others on Medicare need access to comprehensive oral health care in order to thrive.
The Florida Health Justice Project, a nonprofit organization, recognizes that access to quality and affordable health care is a human right and engages in comprehensive advocacy to expand health care access and promote health equity for vulnerable Floridians.
