Posted November 10, 2018 08:10:38 The new dental health care program is designed to offer free oral and maxillofacial care to all low-income New Yorkers, a key part of the mayor’s plan to get New Yorkers back to work.
The program, called LHAV, was first introduced in February 2018 and will be rolled out in New York City over the next several years.
New Yorkers are required to have a dental health plan, which is typically a two-year minimum commitment.
The LHAZ program will provide free oral care for the first year, free maxilloscopy and oral surgery, and dental hygiene.
Dental hygiene is a major part of this program, and will include regular checkups and regular cleaning, as well as cleaning the dentures in your mouth, teeth, gums and teeth.
“The dental health program will allow you to receive care without the need for insurance and with the convenience of a private dental office,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio in a press release.
“I’m proud that we have a proven dental health model that has proven its value in improving health for our residents.”
LHAV is expected to cover about 3 million New Yorkers and will cost $20 million.
Some residents will be eligible for free oral health care during the first three months of the program.
Other people will be required to pay a premium, but this can be waived if the resident chooses to pay.
LHEAV will cover most dental and maxillary procedures.
The plan will be expanded to cover dental hygiene, maxillocaine injections and dental implants.
The goal is to cover all residents, regardless of income, by 2019.
According to the mayor, the goal of the LHAZI is to help ensure New Yorkers have access to quality, affordable dental care.
