AGD Concerned With Presidential Veto of SCHIP Reauthorization Bill
Date:10/4/2007

s bill will be a "scorecard component" when the AGD grades lawmakers serving in the 110th Congress on their commitment to basic oral health care services for all. "This veto was a missed opportunity to protect the health of our nation's most vulnerable population -- the children," Kopenhaver concluded. Myron J. Bromberg, DDS, chair of AGD's Legislative and Governmental Affairs Council, notes that, while an override is hoped for, it may not occur for political reasons; Republican legislators will have to decide if they will vote to override a veto by a Republican president.

Dental care is a basic and necessary health care service for children, and can prevent systemic and oral disease. Early and preventive treatment has a proven track record of cost effectiveness, especially among low-income children. The success of SCHIP in decreasing the number of uninsured children has significantly improved the health-status of children from lower-income families; this program needs to be continued.

The SCHIP was authorized by Congress in 1997 to expand public health care availability to low-income children and families. At that time, SCHIP gave $40 billion to states for 10 years to provide coverage for children living in families who earned too much to qualify for Medicaid, but not enough to afford private insurance. Today, this successful program covers more than six million children.
