Question 2 ballot measure projected to pass by large margin in Mass.
The measure establishes a medical loss ratio for dental insurance plans so that patients can receive more value from the premiums paid.
The voters of Massachusetts voted overwhelmingly in favor of Question 2 on Election Day with more than 70% of votes being cast in favor of the ballot measure, the New York Times projected. The measure establishes a medical loss ratio for dental insurance plans so that patients can receive more value from the premiums paid. With the victory, the state's carriers will now be required to spend at least 83% of premium dollars on patient care rather than on administrative costs, salaries and profits, ADA News reported. "What you've done here in Massachusetts has set the stage for the rest of the country," ADA President George R. Shepley, D.D.S., said to supporters on election night. "You all are just setting a shining example of where we can go in our future endeavors in dental insurance reform and what we can do to help our patients." The ADA committed $5.5 million to the Massachusetts Dental Care Providers for Better Dental Benefits campaign in support of the measure. Dr. Shepley and others from the ADA and Massachusetts Dental Society, including MDS President Meredith Bailey, D.M.D., stopped at several polling places across Massachusetts on Election Day to meet with dentists and voters. "I am so proud of the dedication and hard work done by our members, our leaders and our team to engage Massachusetts voters on why they should vote 'yes' on Question 2," Dr. Bailey said on election night. "I want to thank each person here tonight for your commitment on passing this important measure." For more information about Question 2, visit VoteYESon2ForDental.com.
