What to know about the federal government’s proposed dental care program for children
The federal government is developing a dental care package that could provide families with a more stable, more affordable way to care for their kids.
The new program is part of President Donald Trump’s push to bring more affordable and accessible care to kids nationwide.
Here are five key points to know:1.
The dental program is not a replacement for Medicaid, a federally run health care program that provides health care to nearly 16 million low-income Americans.
Rather, it will be a scaled-back version of Medicaid, which was created in the 1970s.
Under Medicaid, low- and moderate-income children and adults can receive up to $4,800 in dental care per year.
Under the new dental care plan, families would be able to get the dental care they need by paying a fraction of the cost of a traditional health care plan.2.
The federal dental plan would be paid for through a new health care tax credit that would be available to all taxpayers.
The tax credit would be similar to the one that allows taxpayers to lower their taxable income.
It would be worth $2,000 per year for families with children and $2 of that amount would be used to cover the cost.3.
The plan would provide a variety of benefits to families, from expanded access to primary care to preventive services.
The benefits include:1) The tax credits will be extended to eligible families that are in the top 1 percent of income for families, or those earning between $74,400 and $113,400 annually.
For people in the bottom 50 percent of incomes, families will get a $1,200 tax credit.2) Children in families that have no children will be eligible for up to three months of free dental care.3) Families with children that are unemployed or working will be able choose to receive up 1 percent (or $300) of their income as dental care vouchers.4) The new dental plan will be paid through the new health savings account, which is the savings account of choice for many middle-income families.5.
Families will also be able use the health savings accounts for dental care expenses that are not covered by Medicaid.
