MOBILE Health Care Act passes House

The Maximizing Outcomes through Better Investments in Lifesaving Equipment for Health Care Act — legislation that gives community health centers more flexibility in using New Access Points grants for mobile health care units — passed the House of Representatives on Sept. 29.

The ADA supports the bipartisan bill, which is known as the MOBILE Health Care Act. The legislation previously passed the Senate and now heads to the president’s desk to become law.

In a Sept. 20 letter to the House Energy and Commerce Committee, ADA President Cesar R. Sabates, D.D.S., and Executive Director Raymond A. Cohlmia, D.D.S., urged lawmakers to support the bill and also asked that mobile dental, as well as medical vans, be included in the bill and eligible for the New Access Points grants.
